Education, training, youth, sport
Education, training and youth play an essential role in a knowledge-based economy as they support growth and employment by encouraging the emergence of a highly qualified and adaptable population. They also strengthen social cohesion and active citizenship within the European Union. Through education, training and youth programmes, the European Union is developing the European dimension, promoting mobility and encouraging cooperation. The Union supports and complements Member States’ actions in accordance with articles 165 and 166 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
