On 26 April, EFEE’s Executive Committee and General Assembly met in Brussels in the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). The Executive Committee discussed the financial management of EFEE and reflected on the further expansion of EFEE. The main aim of the General Assembly meeting was to provide for a future looking perspective, both in the short term (preparing for the new year ahead) and for the longer term. The General Assembly was updated on recent activities, discussed the involvement in upcoming projects and peer learning activities in 2018 and reflected on EFEE’s position regarding the current and approaching developments at EU level which regard education, social affairs and employment issues (including the Digital Education Action Plan, the European Semester process, and the new multi-annual financial framework 2021-2027). Furthermore, Ms. Marianne Lindheim of the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS) presented her experiences of KS’s involvement in OECD Education 2030 initiative. The Future of Education and Skills 2030 project aims to help countries find answers to what knowledge, skills, attitudes and values are needed for today’s students to thrive and shape their world, as well as how instructional systems can effectively develop them. It was concluded that it would be interesting for EFEE to explore the possibilities to become closer involvement in the project. Besides, an update was given by the EFEE members taking part in the ET2020 Working Groups on Modernisation of Higher Education (Heikki Holopainen from AFIEE) and on Adult Learning (Fiona Maloney from ETBI). The working groups are now coming to an end. EFEE will advocate for its involvement in the next ET2020 Working Group cycle. The General Assembly meeting ended with the (re) appointment of the Executive Committee members, Vice Presidents and President for the next term. EFEE is ready for the future to come. Roger Maris Authentic Jersey
