Become a volunteer
EuroSkills is a vocational skills contest staged every two years in the form of European championships. In 2020, around 600 contestants from eight vocational categories will meet in Graz to compete for victory in 45-50 skills and trades. They will be accompanied by up to 1,500 coaches and will attract about 100,000 visitors to Graz. Many helping hands will be needed to stage an event of this scale successfully. Volunteers make an important contribution towards this goal.
Whether at the big preparation meeting in March 2020 when the stage is set for the event, during the accreditation process for visitors or behind the scenes in the EuroSkills office: we need YOU!
WE ARE SKILLS
With EuroSkills 2020 we are hosting a large-scale event at European level. We are determined to make the event into an unforgettable adventure for all participants. It is also our firm commitment to use EuroSkills 2020 as a unique opportunity to change and shape the future in a sustainable way and to ensure that the participants, businesses and visitors keep the positive energy and the European Skills spirit in their hearts even beyond 2020.
ROAD TO 2020
When the “We are Skills” idea first came into being in June 2015, it laid the foundations for our goal to become the host of EuroSkills 2020 in Graz. After a great deal of creative thinking and some hard work, we are now firmly on the “Road to 2020”. You can read about the main milestones from submitting the bid to host the event to the detailed planning for the competitions in 2020 here. And there will be plenty more to come!
For Austria, EuroSkills 2020 is a matter close to the heart. Austria has been participating in skills competitions for more than 50 years, thereby offering young, skilled workers the opportunity to compete with others in a professional contest. This is how our country’s track record at EuroSkills pans out: in terms of international rankings, Austria is at the top of the leaderboard.
The non-profit organisation EuroSkills 2020 GmbH, wholly owned by the Styrian Economic Chamber, was founded on 13 October 2016, six months after Austria won the bid to host the event. This laid the foundations and since then we have been devoting all our efforts to preparing for the event. The non-profit organisation EuroSkills 2020 GmbH was established with the purpose of preparing, organizing and staging the European vocational skills championships EuroSkills Graz 2020.
