Humana People to People will be participating in the European Development Days 2022 (EDD22) in Brussels as of 21 – 22 June 2022. There, at the annual event we will be showcasing our efforts towards vocational education and formal and informal skills training.

This is in our dedicated support to tackling the most pressing global challenges, from fighting climate change, to improving health systems, and boosting competitiveness and security of global supply chains in line with EDD22's focus.

The 2022 edition of the European Development Days (EDD) will take place on 21 and 22 June under the theme ‘Global Gateway: building sustainable partnerships for a connected world'. The event will bring together high-level participants from around the world to take stock of progress on the implementation of the Global Gateway strategy.

Humana People to People, an international development organisation constituting a network of 29 members working in Europe, North America, Central and South America, Africa and Asia, will host a stand at this year’s EDD22. The stand will highlight its approach to Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for young people in rural areas. The stand will feature the results and impacts of different TVET programs across 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Central and South America.

Providing quality education and building effective Vocational Education and Training ecosystems is pivotal for equipping vulnerable youth with the right set of skills and entrepreneurial spirit, so that they can create growth and decent jobs. If properly harnessed, besides reducing youth unemployment, TVET education can greatly contribute to enhance the transition towards a clean, circular economy.

“TVET has the potential to be catalytic in bridging the gap between the aspirations of young people for a greener future and the ability of existing structures to meet them. TVET colleges can be incubators for game changing ideas for local and global solutions” says Jesper Wohlert, Director of the European Partnership Office, representing Federation Humana People to People.

The stand will be on display at EDD22, BrusselsExpo, 21-22 June 2022.
