2023 is the European Year of Skills!

When Sweden initiates its presidency in the European Council a new European Year also starts. For some years the EU decides on a theme that, among other things, is supposed to stimulate debates about and make the public as well as governments pay attention to a certain issue. The theme for next year is the education and upskilling of youths and adults to decrease unemployment and increase levels of competence within the member states. The focus becomes a natural continuation on the theme of 2022, the Year of Youths, as emphasis remains on the citizens and their role in the future.

A boosted level of skills and competence within the workforce will contribute to innovation and the efficiency of the green and digital transition in Europe!
