Future Generations

Tuesday 11 August 2020  87  Yasser El-Metwally  While global projections indicate that the world will lose about two billion jobs in the year 2030 due to the great development in the field of electronic application programs and their adaptation to keep pace with this new trend that draws the features of the new world order, on the other hand, some countries, including Iraq in particular, are completely preoccupied with expanding universities to create legions of Educated graduates without skills that keep pace with global development and the new system.

The question here arises: What is the benefit of graduates without skills and without planning their future in accordance with global expectations, through intensive programs to guide them towards the next development, with insistence on devoting the culture of dependence on government jobs that do not accommodate a tenth of the percentage of graduates and insistence on impeding the private sector By taking its turn by absorbing the majority of them?

Here are the challenges and problems that do not allow any government, regardless of its power, to just think of solutions and not find a solution to unemployment problems, as is one of the other big challenges.

Who bears the fate of the unemployed generation, who bears responsibility for these numbers of graduates without planning for their future?

We really need a comprehensive change in the education curriculum for new young people, assessing the reality of the education and education sectors according to the expectations of future generations, and working to change the course and orientations of the new generation at the very least, otherwise there is no solution on the horizon.

So far, we disagree and intersect on the subject of electronic education and electronic dealing, while the world is heading towards these technologies in every detail of life. Perhaps it goes without saying that who lags behind the global system and the new system will fail, regardless of its wealth, so how is the case with not managing and investing these wealth in the best way? .

It is now required to reconsider the reality of education by preparing plans and developing realistic programs that are in harmony with the image of the new world order for the new future of young people through researching programs to prepare them according to future perceptions, which means concern for the new generation and youth in a manner that ensures its dealing with the new future of learning in the world and arming them with skills It is not just an education.

The government is required now, while preparing a paper on ‘financial reform for the reality in which we live now, to take into consideration the future of generations and plan to change their orientations towards electronic development and applications and how to deal with them in order to build a generation that depends on its skills and abilities to face the challenges of development and growth imposed on the world, whether we like it or not.

Thus, we will have invested human capital in an optimal and correct manner, as it is the only means to achieve real construction, growth and development. We are calling out and hoping that someone will listen and respond.
