Pact for Skills Forum : Unlocking the skills potential across Europe

The Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs, and Inclusion (DG EMPL), European Commission, is set to host the inaugural Pact for Skills Forum on March 21-22, 2024, at les Ateliers des Tanneurs in Brussels. The event, which will also be livestreamed online, aims to showcase the achievements of the Pact for Skills initiative and present a forward-looking vision for unlocking the skills potential across Europe.

The Pact for Skills, a flagship program of the European Commission, has been instrumental in promoting upskilling and reskilling initiatives to meet the evolving demands of the job market. The first edition of the Skills Forum will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders, including policymakers and practitioners, providing them with a platform to exchange experiences and ideas related to skills development, particularly at the regional level.

Participants will have the opportunity to delve into the successes and challenges encountered during the implementation of the Pact for Skills. The forum will feature high-level plenaries, interactive thematic workshops, a World Café session, and informal open spaces designed to showcase best practices and activities that have proven successful in the field of skills development.

One of the highlights of the forum is the chance for attendees to contribute their recommendations for shaping the future activities of the Pact for Skills, ensuring its continued impact in the medium to long term. The event will foster collaboration and networking opportunities, encouraging the exchange of innovative approaches to upskilling and reskilling initiatives.

To maximize participation, the forum will be accessible through livestreamed sessions online, allowing individuals from across Europe and beyond to join the discussions, share insights, and engage in the Pact for Skills community.

Registration for the event is open, and interested parties can secure their spot by visiting Pact for Skills Forum Registration.

The Pact for Skills Forum promises to be a pivotal event, shaping the trajectory of skills development in Europe and contributing to a more dynamic and adaptable workforce for the challenges of the future.
