Short link to this post:

This study examines possible scenarios (both aspirational and disruptive) for future developments for the education and youth sectors. It also identifies and assesses the policy implications of these scenarios. Ultimately, the study informs EU policy-makers, in particular MEPs, on policy options and their implications for the education and youth sectors in the EU, and seeks to help them prepare for the scenarios identified (both in terms of facing challenges and embracing opportunities).

A presentation of the study took place on 4 September 2019, as follows:

  • Background and objectives of the study
  • Research approach
  • Policy options
  • Future scenarios and policy implications
