Action plan for the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights
March 04, 2021
The European Pillar of Social Rights (2017, Gothenburg) sets out 20 key principles and rights essential for fair and well-functioning labour markets and social protection systems.
The European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan turns the Principles into concrete actions to benefit citizens. It also proposes headline targets for the EU to reach by 2030.
The new headline targets imply that by 2030
• at least 78% of EU population aged 20 to 64 should be in employment;
• at least 60% of all adults should participate in training every year;
• the number of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion should be reduced by at least 15 million.
