“Where memory was crucial in the past, tomorrow’s workers will instead need problem solving skills, empathy, communication and digital skills. Adolescents are some of the country’s most creative and enthusiastic thinkers. We are excited to work with SAP to harness young people’s energy and ideas and help them contribute to their economy and society.” said UNICEF Representative Rana Flowers.
The collaboration forms part of Generation Unlimited, a global partnership working to prepare young people to become engaged and productive citizens. Launched one year ago, Generation Unlimited convenes multisector public and private investment in education and employment of youth, while engaging young people in these efforts.
“People are anxious about the opportunity gap in this new economy,” SAP Viet Nam Managing Director Josephin Galla.
“Businesses need to take meaningful steps to upskill the current and future workforce, regardless of their age or where they live in the world. Together with UNICEF, SAP will focus on starting in the classroom where the foundation for every career is built. We will increase collaboration with the public sector and focus on the best possible curriculum to prepare future workers. This is another example where doing what’s right and doing what’s right for business are in perfect harmony.” saidSAP Viet Nam Managing Director Josephin Galla.
