The European Pillar of Social Rights contributes to fair and well-functioning labour markets and social security systems. This Lab zooms in on Principle 1 (Education, training and life-long learning) and Principle 5 (Secure and adaptable employment). Because a successful implementation of both principles asks for multi-level governance and cooperation between different tiers of government, examples will be shared and discussed to A) learn from one another’s expertise to feed into the Commission’s country reports and to B) co-create tools to deepen the monitoring up to the local level.
