European Commission Forum on the future of learning

January 24, 2019
Organised at the initiative of Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport by the European Commission, DG EAC, the event provides an open platform for exchanges between education, training and youth stakeholders and policymakers. The main discussions focus on key issues that education and training will be facing in Europe and beyond until 2030, including the challenges associated to demographics; inclusion and citizenship; technological change and the future of work; digitalisation of society; environmental concerns; and investments, reforms and governance.

The Forum builds on the work of the European Education and Training Expert Panel, which consists of independent experts from across Europe. The Panel members present their findings on these six challenges and there is an opportunity to provide input to the preparation of the new EU education and training cooperation framework beyond 2020. The Forum also highlights some of the European Union’s main initiatives driving forward the future education and training, including non-formal and informal learning, in particular via the Erasmus programme.
