In a world where trends in globalization, demographics and technology are changing the labor market – how can schools create adaptable workers equipped with 21st-century skills for a changing labor market? In this session, the panel analyses the limitations of the school system at a time when we need to prepare young people for the 50 to 70 million jobs that are needed tomorrow. With a particular focus on the MENA region and the Philippines, the speakers discuss how school systems need to be strengthened to develop entrepreneurial mindsets adapted to solving real-world problems and the role that effective public-private partnerships have to play in bringing about large-scale educational reform.
