Adoption of EESCs’ opinion on Rethinking Education

Institutional news -

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has adopted on 10 July its opinion on the Communication of the European Commission: “Rethinking Education: Investing in skills for better socio-economic outcomes”. EUCIS-LLL was consulted by the EESC on 5 February during a public hearing and the Platform’s concerns have been heard, specifically on fighting against the vision of “education as nothing more than a tool for developing solely work-related skills and for increasing employability” at the expense of qualities and mindsets such as active citizenship, personal development and well-being. EUCIS-LLL also welcomes the importance given to non-formal education in this opinion.
