Can you picture your life in 20 years? Do you feel positive about it? Will your job still exist in 2040? The European Training Foundation wants to hear your ideas about the future of work and skills, with a focus on countries surrounding the EU.

The opinion poll, which will close on 31 October, helps to set the groundwork for discussions at the upcoming ‘Skills for the Future: Managing Transition’ international conference (#Skills4Future) in Turin, Italy, on 21-22 November.

Up to 180 participants from more than 50 countries will take part, exploring how developing and transition countries can respond to global trends shaping the labour market of tomorrow from a skills perspective.

Digital technology and innovation is accelerating at unprecedented rates transforming society, industry, policy and the environment. Lifelong learning is the key to embracing change and turning it to our advantage. The capacity of the EU and its neighbouring countries to adapt education and training systems to these new realities will determine how well we are preparing the next generation to raise above the challenges of the present – harnessing their potential to contribute to inclusive growth and stability” said Cesare Onestini, ETF Director.

‘Skills for the Future: Managing Transition’ will be an opportunity to exchange views from the EU and beyond, explore ways to respond to a changing labour market from a skills perspective and to identify solutions.
