EUCIS-LLL new position on ET2020 review: striving for a more social Europe

2014 is a turning point for European cooperation in Education and Training: mid-term review of the Europe 2020 strategy, of the Education and Training 2020 Strategic Framework (ET2020), elections of a new Commissioner and Members of Parliament, launch of the EU funded programme Erasmus+ 2014-2020… The mid-term review of ET2020 is of particular importance, as EU institutions will set new political priorities. EUCIS-LLL believes that only comprehensive strategies can bring results in terms of employment, social inclusion and civic participation including important dimensions such as tolerance and intercultural dialogue. We ring the alarm bell in our new position paper to build a more social and cohesive Europe and to reflect this in the revision of ET2020 and more broadly of the Europe 2020 strategy.
