Youth@Work “Digital Green Innovation” Conference

Conference – Symposium - Forum

3-7 May 2022 | Cyprus

This conference aims to explore the employability and entrepreneurship opportunities in the digital and green sectors and thus create a cross-sectoral network of professionals.

The conference will provide a look into the future technological developments, skills and knowledge needed in the green and digital labor market. The impact of artificial intelligence and automatization of jobs on the labour market is significant. It is therefore important for youth work practitioners, formal educators, and other relevant stakeholders to be informed and get a glimpse of what the future might look like and of the competences needed for employment and entrepreneurship. Moreover, since digitalization offers opportunities for greener events and for reducing the carbon footprint of “business as usual” activities, this conference will provide an opportunity for connecting the green and ICT sectors.
