European Employment & Social Rights Forum 2022

The European Employment and Social Rights Forum (EESRF) took place on 16-17 November 2022 at the Egg in Brussels. This first edition of the event focused on how to achieve a fair and inclusive green transition for all.

For two days, the event brought together more than 1200 participants and 75 speakers with political interventions from the European Parliament, the Czech Presidency, President von der Leyen and Commissioner Schmit, former Commission President Juncker, the Belgian and Greek governments and also academics, citizens and companies who shared their views on how to make the green transition a success for our societies.

The social Forum marked a triple birthday:

  1. The Employment and Social Rights Forum’s own launch;
  2. The 5th anniversary of the European Pillar of Social Rights, proclaimed at the Gothenburg Summit in 2017;
  3. The 2nd anniversary of the Pact for Skills that brings together public and private organisations who commit to concrete training offers for workers across Europe. At the Forum we welcomed the 1000th member of the Pact and unveiled a new Pact label that will help every member who commits to help people get skilled to be recognised as skills leader in their country.

The European Commission hopes to see you all next year. Sign up for our newsletter to receive more news on the Forum!
