As the impact of the pandemic increasingly reveals the crucial value of digital skills for anyone to be able to navigate a world transformed by digital technology, how prominently feature digital skills in the priorities of the European Union? How ready are the Member States to ensure that all their citizens are equally capable of adapting to a digital future that the pandemic has brought on sooner than expected?
MEP Victor Negrescu will discuss these questions with our speakers, addressing pros and cons of the Digital Education Action Plan and the updated Skills Agenda, while looking at example of initiatives in the industry and civil society that could pave the way for new or improved policies.
