In February, The European Training Foundation (ETF) holds a campaign aimed at reflecting on the future of work and skills in the EU’s neighbouring regions. For the whole month, experts and practitioners will share evidence and opinions regarding the responses to global challenges: digital revolution, shifting demographics, migration, climate change and the recent pandemic.
“The capacity of the European Union and its neighbouring countries to adapt education and training systems to changes will determine how well we are preparing the next generation to rise above the challenges of the present – harnessing their potential to contribute to inclusive growth and stability,” says Cesare Onestini, the ETF’s director.
The discussion on how governments, businesses, social partners, civil society, research institutions, communities and education and training providers should overcome the growing mismatch between workers’ skills and those needed by employers can be followed on the ETF’s platforms under the hashtags: Skills4Future and FutureOfWork!
