Opinion of the EESC on the economic crisis, education and the labour market

The purpose of this opinion is not to examine the causes of the crisis, but rather to highlight the detrimental effects it has had and is continuing to have on the fabric of society, and also to suggest a number of strategies that need to be implemented in order to lessen its impact and cope with its effects.

It will address the importance of education and training as key tools for combating the crisis, relations between education/training and the world of work, the integration of young people into the labour market, the needs and responsibility of businesses regarding the training of their employees and the promotion of decent, high-quality jobs.
