On the occasion of Italy's G20 Presidency, ICCS has decided to launch the events series Italy to G20.
ICCS in collaboration with Italian and ASEAN partners has selected a shortlist of specific topics related to the G20 working groups: Education, International Financial Architecture, Digital Economy, Trade and Investment, Tourism, Energy Transition and Climate Sustainability.
The topics will be discussed during a series of dialogues organized in Singapore where speakers, connected from ASEAN and European Countries, will share their views and experiences.
The first Webinar will be focusing on: EDUCATION
The Education Working Group at the G20 examines the factors affecting the right to education and access to higher education, also in light of the pandemic. Reducing the digital divide and exploring the digital tools to expand the communication channels between education and the job market will be among its priorities under the Italian Presidency.
The topics will be presented during the first webinar of the Italy to G20 series organized by ICCS in collaboration with Teach for All.
