The 1st European Summit on Education, held in January 2018 in Brussels, was organised by Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Tibor Navracsics.
This Summit follows the Gothenburg Summit in November 2017, in which the Commission presented its vision to create a European Education Area by 2025 at the latest, and the European Council in December, in which the Member States expressed their willingness to take more actions in the field of education. The purpose of this summit is to discuss the future of education in Europe.
Under the theme "Laying the foundations of a European Education Area: for an inclusive, value-based and innovative education", the Summit focused on answering questions such as how high-quality, inclusive and values-based education can contribute to the success of Europe, what skills will be in the coming decades, and how we can promote basic, digital and entrepreneurship skills.
The programme dealt with a variety of issues, such as the way to involve disadvantaged students, the best way to train teachers or how to promote learning through sports. The relevance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in education, as well as the role of children in the transformation of societies was also highlighted.
On the basis of the conclusions of the Summit, the Commission will launch new initiatives in the spring of 2018. Among those new actions, proposals related to the mutual recognition of degree certificates, language learning, a common frame for education quality, a European agenda for culture and a new EU strategy for the youth will be presented. Once in Gothenburg, President Juncker invited EU leaders to double the number of young people in the Union who will participate in Erasmus + until 2025, which will require a 29.4 billion-euro budget for the period 2021-2027. In addition, the Commission will continue to work on its project to create a network of European universities and a new EU student card. The card will allow students to study abroad easier than ever.
