The European Year of Skills will start officially on 9 May 2023 and will run until 8 May 2024.

EAEA’s new statement says that more needs to be done at the EU and national levels to give adult learners access to learning mobility. Learning mobility is essential for the development of new skills, the promotion of health and well-being, the strengthening of European solidarity, cohesion, and democracy, and the motivation to learn.
The European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) calls for more inclusive and effective paid training leave schemes that can be exercised transnationally across the EU to increase participation in adult learning.
