Forum on #FutureOfLearning addresses key challenges facing #Education

| January 28, 2019

Coinciding with the first-ever International Day of Education, the Forum on the Future of Learning gathered more than 300 education, training and youth policymakers and stakeholders in Brussels to discuss six key challenges and opportunities that European education and training systems will face in the next decade.

The areas – analyzed by the European Education and Training Expert Panel – cover demographics; inclusion and citizenship; technological change and the future of work; digitalization of society; environmental concerns; and investments, reforms and governance. Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Commissioner Tibor Navracsics, who opened the event, said: “The Forum on the Future of Learning is an important opportunity to discuss the future challenges the EU faces in the field of education and training. I am pleased that it will explore some of the most pressing issues we need to tackle over the next decade, and look at how the EU can best support this work, including through our joint efforts to build a European Education Area by 2025.”

The Forum also showcased some key forward-looking EU and national initiatives and projects. The event took place in parallel to the publication of the Erasmus+Annual Report for 2017.
