Fostering creativity, entrepreneurship and mobility in education and training

The provision made in the Youth Guarantee System regarding entrepreneurship has yet to be implemented in the Member States. The various options for steering young people into business therefore need to be identified.

Fostering entrepreneurship, creativity and mobility in education and training is a priority. Entrepreneurship paves the way for the more specific skills or knowledge needed by those setting up a social enterprise or a business.

    A work programme that is on the right track but that needs fast-track achievements to be convincing, says the EESC

    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) welcomes the new direction taken by the European Commission in its 2015 work programme which was published today. The EESC is pleased that the new programme is very much to the point and is focused on the major challenges of the future rather than on the details that so often give rise to overelaborate legislation which the public finds simply impossible to understand. However, the EESC stresses the importance of giving practical expression to these new provisions – something for which its contribution to the work programme adopted unanimously by the representatives of employers, employees and civil society – provides some guidelines.

    EESC pushes for a circular economy model. Juncker's 10 point plan considered to be lopsided

    At its last plenary session in 2014, the EESC reiterated its support for the policy package "Towards a circular economy: A zero waste programme for Europe" launched by the Barroso Commission last summer. The Committee urged the new Commission to move forward with this initiative, including the legislative proposals amending several waste directives, which would help to put an end to the current linear economic model of "take, make, consume and dispose". Europe's economy needs to shift to a circular model making smart and efficient use of natural resources.
