GLOBE EU online panel discussion: "Employment Opportunities in a Circular Economy: Meeting the Challenge of Mismatched Skill Sets"
On May 31, a GLOBE EU panel moderated by Marita Ulvskog MEP will consider how the EU can support workers whose skills and expertise are at risk of becoming redundant in an economy that is become increasingly sustainable and less dependent on natural resources.
While the EU’s transition towards a circular economy will certainly result in many new jobs, the number of jobs that is likely to disappear should not be underestimated. Indeed, anxieties caused by looming economic changes are a key contributor to growing support for populist politics and increased Euroscepticism.
The event can be watched by European citizens via a video link on the GLOBE EU and the Commission’s dedicated website. Viewers can ask questions via Twitter using the hashtag #globeeujobs.
