“EuroSkills 2020 is a magnificent and unique opportunity to make a lasting impact, to achieve change and to ensure that the positive energy and the European skills concept will continue to be passed on even after 2020. The enthusiasm and the willingness to become involved in organising the event have not wavered since the bid was won. The European vocational championships are more than simply an event that is being held in 2020. We will use this preparation time to define a great many lasting focal areas and highlights in the field of vocational education and the skilled workforce, under the umbrella brand ‘EuroSkills 2020 – We are Skills’. We see this project being as a key driver for lasting change.”
