Youth Employment

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has devastated young workers across the G20. Young people, already suffering from unemployment and underemployment before the pandemic, bear the brunt of falling labor demand. Not only has the pandemic scuttled employment opportunities and pushed young workers into lower-quality jobs and entry barriers for first-time employment seekers. Young people’s transition from schooling to the world of work is fraught with many difficulties and marked by low-paying, low-status and unstable work.

Faced with these problems, youths require protection and support for their future employment. Enabling social safety nets, especially for those working in informal and non-standard forms of employment, will help safeguard young workers from risks of unstable employment and deepening inequalities. Promoting social entrepreneurship among youths will also give young people the opportunity to take their future into their own hands, contribute to job creation, and address societal challenges through innovative and impactful solutions.

Digital Transformation

The advancement of digital technology bolsters transformation in many cross-cutting verticals. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated such transformation in private and public sectors, some in areas where policy frameworks are still ambiguous and nascent. The youth roles in digital governance subtheme highlights challenges for youth participation in orchestrating digital solutions in the face of digital divide and the absence of connectivity, lack of digital literacy and skills, and the growth of security and privacy concerns. If these issues are well addressed, youths can have more opportunities to play a significant role in promoting digital activism and movements, participating in the decision making process, and initiating various digital-related projects.

The digital financial awareness subtheme underpins supply and demand risk factors, lack of financial literacy, and the emergence of digital currency and cryptocurrency as challenges, and linkage to development, financial inclusion and women participation, and deepened use-cases as opportunities. Financial inclusion facilitated by digital technology can help reduce income inequality, boost consumption, accelerate job creation, promote investments in human capital, and enable people, including youths, to manage risk and deal with financial shocks.

Sustainable and Livable Planet

For many millennia, humans have been living on a relatively stable and resilient planet. However, our planetary systems are currently being strained and stretched to a breaking point resulting in the environmental crisis we see today. Young people, in particular, are disproportionately affected by this crisis. Not only are youths the present and future inhabitants of this planet, they are especially vulnerable due to their interaction with their surroundings, reliance on adults, and the accumulation of risks and insults across their lifetimes. These include the effects on young people’s physical health as well as the psychological and mental health consequences. Not to mention the learning loss caused by school cancellations during the COVID-19 epidemic.

To secure a safe and just future for humanity, we need urgent action at an unprecedented scale to protect and restore our planet’s resources and change the current linear economy. Youths can play a large part in this transition. The meaningful inclusion of youths in discussions on the future of our planet should include consideration on the cumulative effects of the planetary crisis towards them, how to make youths part of the solution (e.g. as implementing actors on the ground), resources to help them prepare for the changing environment (e.g. for jobs, education, training), and being reactive to the evolving demands from youths as more conscious consumers.

Diversity and Inclusion

Young people’s futures are being shaped all over the world by rapidly changing labor markets, the emergence of new technologies, climate crises, conflicts, and, the COVID-19 pandemic. The rising inequalities have exacerbated the issues confronting young people, such as the disruption in education, diminishing job markets, and rising intolerance – leaving young people, especially those who are marginalized and vulnerable, with limited options, making them more at risk of exploitation.

The full engagement of society, particularly young people, has never been more important in establishing a more inclusive and equitable world. Education and the creative economy provide meaningful opportunities for young people to express and be recognized for their distinctive perspectives, to increase their resilience in the face of future disasters, and to build a diverse and inclusive society.
