The Role of Young People in Shaping the Economy of the Future
14 February 2018

The world is now on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution, set to completely change the way we live, work and communicate. This name has been given to the current era of innovations, where advanced technologies are rapidly and radically transforming entire sectors of the economy. In shaping this future economy, there will inevitably be great changes for all involved in global politics, from the private to the public sector, as well as changes in the academic world and in society itself. Across the world, young people are the driving force behind innovation; they are the stimulus for putting new initiatives into practice, they contribute new ideas and energy, and they have enormous intellectual potential. The value of youth in the modern world is also rising due to the growing importance of the education and professional skills necessary in the context of a scientific and technological revolution. Key issues: • Young people and the fourth industrial revolution • Focus on digital technologies • Re-shaping business models • Employment market management • How do young people contribute to shaping the economy of the future?
