Share Your Idea for the Youth, Skills and the Workforce of the Future Challenge

The Youth, Skills & the Workforce of the Future challenge is a partnership between the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Solve initiative and the Atlassian Foundation, and seeks innovative ideas that will prepare young people for the workforce of the future. DFAT is targeting ideas that impact developing countries in the Indo-Pacific, in particular those that address the needs of women and girls, and people with a disability. The World Bank estimates that 4 out of 5 children entering primary school today will eventually hold jobs that do not currently exist – and it is the world’s poorest communities that are likely to be the most adversely affected by these market shifts. Share your idea by 1 August 2017 to win a share of up to AU$2.8 million in grant funding to scale the best and most innovative ideas. #YSWoF #SolveMIT http://bit.ly/solveyouth
