Where : Kazan, Russia
This August Kazan will be the skills capital of the world as the city hosts the WorldSkills Competition. 1,400 young people from around the globe will compete to be world champions in 56 different skills.

Alongside the Competition the WorldSkills Conference will ask pressing questions for our sector including; how can we train an agile generation of skilled young people for the future? How will they stay relevant in the face of economic, social and technological transformations?

The programme will discuss the challenges, and megatrends, that we face in our societies throughout the world. These range from the negative like economic shocks and climate change, to the positive like technological transformation. The sessions will also examine the solutions and advantages that skills offer to these megatrends, in the context of the fourth Industrial Revolution and climate change, and how skills will be integral to a better future for us all.

Join industry leaders, policy-makers, education and training providers, researchers, and changemakers at the WorldSkills Conference as we turn Kazan into an international incubator for innovative solutions for change.
