Young people shaping the future of education in Europe: Video conference on the European Education Area

Remote Event

On 9 July, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, will host a video conference with youth representatives from across Europe on the future of education.

Tune into the discussion to discover the vision of young people helping to shape the European Education Area! We want to know the views of the European youth on:

  • Education in Europe today: What works and what needs improving?
  • The future of learning: What and how to learn and to teach?
  • How to make European education work for everybody?

Young people have a major stake in the future of education and training. They see education and training as one of the top three EU priorities, alongside the green transition and fighting inequalities according to the 2019 Eurobarometer survey. Commission President Ursula von der Leyen prioritised making the European Education Area a reality by 2025 in her political guidelines.This video conference with Commissioner Gabriel will present a unique opportunity to take on board the perspectives of young people. Their voices and ideas will strengthen the proposal and link it with the issues on the ground. The European Education Area will build on and further develop a range of concrete measures: developing European universities; making qualifications and learning abroad automatically recognised across Member States; improving language learning; embracing common values; strengthening quality early childhood education and care; tracking the employability of graduates; supporting the acquisition of key competences; and strengthening digital learning. It is time now to look further ahead: even more focused on teachers and students, more digital, more inclusive, more green, and equipped to get on track to recovery. When Europe went under lockdown, young people were the first to feel its effects. From one week to another, young people’s learning shifted from classrooms to computer and TV screens. To avoid persisting impact on young people’s lives, the von der Leyen Commission will put forward new actions in September.

Want to contribute further to the future of European education?

The Commission is also currently renewing the 2018-2020 Digital Education Action Plan, as a supporting action to the vision to create a European Education Area. An open public consultation on the new Action Plan was launched on 18 July and closes on 4 September 2020. The public consultation seeks to gather the views and experiences of all citizens, institutions and organisations on the unprecedented coronavirus crisis, the related switch to distance and online learning, and their vision for the future of digital education in Europe. These contributions will help shape a Commission Communication on the future of digital education expected in September 2020. Don’t miss your chance to be heard!

Diskussjoni ta’ EPALE: Il-forniment ta’ tagħlim ta’ ħiliet bażiċi

Il-ħiliet bażiċi huma trasversali. Dawn mhumiex rilevanti biss għall-politika edukattiva, iżda huma rilevanti wkoll għall-politiki tal-impjiegi, tas-saħħa, soċjali u ambjentali. Il-bini ta’ miżuri ta’ politika koeżivi li jappoġġjaw lill-persuni bi ħtiġijiet bażiċi ta’ ħiliet huwa meħtieġ mhux biss biex il-Perkorsi ta’ Titjib tal-Ħiliet ikunu suċċess, iżda wkoll biex jgħinu fil-bini ta’ soċjetajiet aktar reżiljenti u inklużivi. Id-diskussjoni online se ssir f’din il-paġna fis-16/17 ta’ Settembru bejn l-10:00 u s-16:00 CET u se tkun immoderata mill-Koordinaturi Tematiċi ta’ EPALE tal-EBSN
