-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

The working (wo)man of today is faced with chances and challenges: knowledge and work can be sold globally while entire occupational groups are in danger. The education sector teaches for a labour market that will no longer exist. How can a European network of cities be created to secure the balance of life and work?
