Culture and Education for all: building the skills for more resilient societies

February 22, 2018, 11:58 am

Facing the fourth industrial revolution requires a re-think of the different skills we equip our citizens with; from independent thinking to human-centred skills, such as social and artistic competences, or cultural expression. In an increasingly globalised world we can expect migratory flows that will require the embracing of cultural diversity, both in work settings and in our communities. This should not be limited to the younger generations as European citizens of all ages are already facing these challenges and hence the proposed revision of key competences for lifelong learning will demand a holistic approach, across formal, non-formal and informal settings. If we want to ensure a prosperous European future for all and truly “strengthen European identity through Education and Culture”, as the European Commission’s Communication on a European Education Area proposes, our approach should be as innovative and inclusive as possible.
