Education Design Requirements Towards a Sustainable and Autonomous Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


EU lacks chains in its industrialization model. In a new multipolar world, the absence of autonomy may cause disruptions. The new model of reindustrialization should be sustainable. Sustainability has the well-known three vectors of environment, enterprises, and society. All changes will be possible with the willingness of people. It is through education redesign that sustainability will be achieved, focusing on persons – “Make EU humanist again” could be the motto for the next generation. The break of product chains in the EU removed a middle class that worked on production and services. Salaries and social recognition go to extremes. Nonsuccess persons with middle Education turned disposable. However, all parts of a value chain need different skilled persons. The new reindustrialization process can include all types of persons. The requirement is to “shape the education system to create a sustainable EU defined in the environmental, economic, and societal” to achieve it. It asks for developing group skills and individual acceptance of the other. It demands a change in Education to focus on secondary Education, other than the tertiary level. Countries in the EU are making a huge effort to raise young people to high Education, making such persons work in sub-employment. The ability to work with all levels of Education is the lever for self-esteem, personal recognition, and social cohesion.
