EMCC Global has recently published a position paper on the skills agenda – saying everyone has the right to quality and inclusive education, training and lifelong learning in order to maintain and acquire skills that enable them to participate fully in society and manage successfully transitions in the workplace.
The announced ‘European Skills Agenda’ was presented on 1 July by the European Commission. The publication sets out twelve objectives to achieve Principle 1 of the European Pillar of Social Rights for inclusive access to quality education, training and lifelong learning. The Skills Agenda aims to steer the skills transition of the European workforce in the context of the digital and green transition. Through the European Skills Agenda, the EU could become a frontrunner in the implementation of the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular SDG 4 on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
