Education is a cornerstone of sustainable development. Yet more than half of the 1.8 billion young people (aged 10-24) worldwide will not have the right skills for the workforce, today and in the future. The rapid growth of technology and globalization - the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) – is changing our daily personal and work lives. While these advancements are bringing benefits to many, millions are at risk from being left behind.   

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) clearly recognize that the skills gap must be addressed, through the focus of equitable and quality education. But the evolving nature of work means rethinking the skills and opportunities needed for success. 

At Deloitte, we are focusing our resources and efforts to make an impact on this shared challenge worldwide. We are committed to preparing 50 million people for the evolving global economy by 2030. This means applying our core skills, experience, and global reach to develop job skills, improve educational outcomes, and create opportunities for those who may be left behind.

In line with this ambition, Deloitte is proud to support Lead2030 Challenge for SDG4 for the second year. Working together, we can accelerate innovative youth-led solutions to achieve inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all. 

In line with our ambition to prepare 50 million futures for a world of opportunity by 2030, the challenge seeks to support scalable youth-led solutions that:

  • Utilize innovative approaches and technology

  • Address root causes of the issue

  • Demonstrate ability to drive impact and potential to scale

  • Recognize existing efforts and collaborate with others to accelerate impact

  • Facilitate opportunities for collective impact, by engaging a wide-range of stakeholders

  • Improve the quality of, or access to, education and skills training that prepares young people to succeed in 2030.

The challenge is open to young people from social enterprises, non-profits, or community organizations.

 

The solutions should drive impact in at least one of the following areas:

  • Create skills development or lifelong learning opportunities for young people to prepare for the future workforce.

  • Accelerate entrepreneurial skills and develop a new generation of job creators. 

  • Improve access to education and skills opportunities for those that may be left behind by the rapidly changing global economy.
