Pact for Youth Leaders Meeting

Added on 30-03-2017

Please note that attendance to this event is by invitation only.

European Commissioner Marianne Thyssen and Viscount Etienne Davignon are convening the third Leaders’ Meeting of the European Pact for Youth, in Brussels on 12 July 2017.

The meeting will take place less than half a year ahead of the European Enterprise-Education Summit. Once more, European Commissioner Tibor Navracsics will attend. This meeting will focus on a proposal to mainstream entrepreneurial and soft skills in curricula. This is aligned with the European Commission’s New EU Skills Agenda as well as their recent Investing in Youth initiative that both propose to further support entrepreneurial mind-sets.

Today, over 100 leading companies, organisations and networks that have a collective reach to thousands of enterprises, schools and young people, are leveraging each other’s efforts and capacities (see also the 2015-2016 progress review). As such, the Pact offers leaders the platform to make strong and combined impact across the EU.
