Day 1 includes an open forum to showcase innovative approaches that are being tried and tested by private sector companies, civil society organisations, foundations and World Bank teams.


As a prospective member VVOB has been invited to give a lightning talk on 'Taking a sectoral approach'. VVOB presents its “Skilling for Sustainable Tourism” programme in Ecuador, which brings together partners from the TVET sector and the tourism and travel industry to prepare youth for employment in this key sector of the Ecuadorian economy. Interactive discussions will explore how these new innovative ideas can be scaled up through strategic partnerships. Events on day 2 are reserved for workshops and the S4YE Board Meeting.
