Roundtable at the #EURegionsWeek session on “Regions providing skill and jobs for a green Society”
We are inviting you to a virtual roundtable in the framework of the #EURegionsWeek session on “Regions providing skill and jobs for a green Society” – organised by EfVET, EARLALL, DG-EMPL, and KCE.
The roundtable discussion will take place on Wednesday, 13 October at 16:30 CET.
The pandemic has drastically changed Europe’s social and economic fabric. Our ways of working, learning, and training are fundamentally changing, and the EU’s Green Deal has put forward new ambitious climate and energy objectives. What does this mean for citizens, companies, local authorities, and regions? Is the move towards a “green society” just a utopian idea or does it also support a job-rich recovery? What kind of skills are needed to benefit from it? What tools and ideas exist to support people and facilitate the transition towards a more sustainable economy? And most importantly: are there good examples we can learn from? These and other issues will be tackled at this interactive round-table discussion with experts from the fields of employment, skills and sustainable development affairs. Please send your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
