After the launch of the Pact for Skills in November 2020, the European Commission organised its second networking event to allow organisations that are not yet part of the Pact to learn more about the initiative and how to join, and to exchange with current members of the Pact and Large-Scale Partnerships.
The event was livestreamed and had 215 participants. This second networking event provided a unique opportunity for members and non-members of the Pact to exchange their ideas and experience of dealing with upskilling and reskilling challenges in Europe. Participants who are not yet members of the Pact were invited to make connections and take inspiration from current members, who shared their experience and the benefits of joining the Pact.
A key take-away of the event is the importance of collective efforts and joining the forces to address the skills challenges in Europe. The Pact for Skills is a growing community of like-minded organisations providing space for working together, sharing good practice, mutual learning and pooling resources. As mentioned by Justina Bieliauskaite (European Digital Alliance for SMEs), the key benefit of being part of the Pact for Skills is the ability to collaborate with all ecosystems, large-scale partnerships and beyond. Join the Pact for Skills community during the pivotal moment in preparation for the European Year of Skills 2023!
