EUCIS-LLL on Europe 2020 strategy – from political will to implementation
The Europe 2020 Strategy on the verge on its mid-term review. Simultaneously with the crisis, inequalities have increased in European education and training systems where vulnerable groups are particularly disadvantaged. The level of low-skilled adults, increased numbers of people at the risk of social exclusion and rising unemployment levels in most Member States show that a lot more is to be done in order to reach the 2020 targets. This will require a renewed political commitment to foster lifelong learning at European level with a stronger focus on the social dimension of education, training and youth policies and funds. European citizens should be rightly placed at the centre of the strategy and of all political decisions made at EU level. A common vision for the European Union cannot be reduced to purely economic considerations.
