Launching: HSBC Future Skills Development Project

Literacy in money matters from primary level upwards, skills for jobs, competencies in digital technology plus intercultural communication and critical thinking - all of these are included in this ambitious multi-faceted project being launched on 23 February at HKFYG.

Sponsored by HSBC, the project will be run for the next two years by the Federation's Creative Education and Youth Employment units with the HKFYG Leadership Institute. The aims relate to three "pillars", described as "future skills for employment, innovation and technology and financial capability." The impact on project participants will be assessed by an independent study based on "Ten Skills for 2020" suggested by the World Economic Forum* and the outcome is eagerly awaited.
