6 October 2020, Live from Berlin
The future is open. This is made remarkably clear by the coronavirus pandemic and the big challenges of our time such as climate change and social inequality. It is therefore more important than ever for us Europeans to act and shape our future together. Only joint action will help us solve the Covid-19 crisis. Only joint action will allow us to build a strong, green and fair Europe.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defines ambitious goals (the SDGs) for our European future. Numerous initiatives of the Member States and the European Commission, including the European Green Deal, allow us to turn these goals into great opportunities for Europe. But in order to be able to take advantage of these opportunities, we must make full use of the potential of research and education.
We would like to invite you to provide your insights to this discussion – together with other high-level international guests. The “European Forum on Science & Education for Sustainability” on 6 October 2020, which is
organised by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of Germany's Council Presidency, will provide a suitable platform. Anja Karliczek, Federal Minister of Education and Research, will open the forum.
The Forum is expected to deliver concrete proposals on how education and research can provide fresh impetus for a sustainable Europe. One area of focus will be the European programmes Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ and topics such as climate change, the circular economy, social inequality and education for sustainable development. We invite you as representatives of politics, administration, science, industry and civil society from
all over Europe to take part in the Forum.
Please save the date. Further information will be sent to you shortly HERE.
The Forum will be held in an interactive digital format.
