Education, Work, and Youth

The fourth industrial revolution is underway, and technological changes will disrupt economic systems, displace workers, concentrate power and wealth, and erode trust in public institutions and the democratic process

The relationship between societies and their institutions is changing, and countries will have to strengthen their capacities to avoid heightened social divisions. Innovating, revisiting existing models of education, skill development and investment, preparing for rapid urbanization, and integrating different stakeholders into the conversation will be essential for global actors to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population. To that end, the Project on Prosperity and Development at CSIS has created a platform for engaging a broad set of actors to support the creation of knowledge-based economics that can foster global economic prosperity and political stability.
