The transformation towards green and sustainable economies relies on the development of knowledge and skills as way to empower people. Much like the fourth industrial revolution, this transformation offers great potential for new activities and jobs and requires a more nuanced reflection about the development of skills, knowledge and competencies that will be in demand in the future and, in turn, on how this would affect human mobility, for example:

  • What type of skills will be needed?
  • How should these be acquired (e.g. upskilling/re-skilling) and transferred so they benefit communities, businesses, and individuals?
  • What implications does this have for migration for the EU and for intra-EU mobility?
  • How can skills partnerships with third countries be leveraged to support the EU Green Deal?
