The European Commission adopted on 18 November the report on progress to achieve the European Education Area by 2025 – an area where barriers to learning are gone and everyone has better access to quality education. The report looks at the ongoing work and progress towards EU-level targets.
The report looks at actions such as:
- strategic policy initiatives across all education sectors
- EU-funded projects such as Teacher Academies, the Education for Climate Coalition or Centres of Vocational Excellence
- expert groups on issues such as disinformation or quality investment
- measures to make the Erasmus+ programme and the European Solidarity Corps more inclusive
These actions are reinforcing the initiatives taken by Member States, thanks to a common commitment to the European Education Area.
The report also acknowledges the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, and the welcoming of refugee learners and teachers following the Russian war against Ukraine. It shows how joint national and EU commitment has helped respond to these challenges swiftly and effectively.
