The World Skills Conference took place in the context of the 44th World Skills Competition, bringing together leading figures from industry, governments, international organizations, trade unions and academia to discuss about the globalisation of skills and careers.

Mr Fandrejewski participated in a panel discussion on the identification of changing skills demands and gave insights about the point of view of young learners across Europe. The new European Apprentice Network, where he is a member, was discussed as well as the importance of skills recognition, language competences and intercultural skills in rapidly evolving and digitalising labour markets. The CESI Youth Representative encouraged policy makers to engage in fruitful discussions with youth organisations, in Europe and beyond.
