The shift toward a climate-neutral Europe depends greatly on the skills and competences of individuals and businesses to initiate and drive the needed transformations. With its European Skills Agenda, the European Union (EU) has detailed a five-year plan to help individuals and businesses build skills in order to strengthen the sustainable competitiveness of the EU, ensure social fairness, and strengthen resilience.
