The European Education, Training and Youth Forum is an annual event which brings together key stakeholders in education, training and youth.
This year's Forum focused on how to best deliver on the New Skills Agenda for Europe adopted by the Commission on 10 June 2016. EUNEC president Manuel Miguéns participated at the Forum.
The Forum opened with a panel with representatives from the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council, who outlined the main aims and actions of the New Skills Agenda. The second panel was an interactive discussion among stakeholders on the Ten Actions covered by the New Skills Agenda and included a system of online voting to allow participants to map their expectations and pose questions on specific initiatives. The Forum program included interactive and innovative workshops where participants had the opportunity to contribute to upcoming initiatives and discuss implementation of announced actions. The closing panel looked ahead on how to take forward the conclusions of the Forum for delivery of the New Skills Agenda.
