Save the date – High-Level Conference "A social agenda for transport" – 4 June 2015, Brussels

Save the date for the High-Level Conference "A social agenda for transport" which will be held in Brussels on 4 June 2015, on the initiative of Commissioner Bulc in charge of Transport, and Commissioner Thyssen in charge of Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility.

The conference will allow key players to exchange views on the social dimension of transport and will pave the way to future EU action in this field. It will address in particular the following questions:
  • How to make transport professions more attractive? How to adapt qualification and training needs to new technologies and to new types of jobs?
  • What could be further achieved to improve employment and working conditions in the transport sector?
  • How to strengthen the involvement of social partners in the EU transport policy?
The debate is aimed at generating a dynamic discussion between social partners and stakeholders from all transport sectors.
