The transition to a circular economy will require a qualified workforce with specific and sometimes new skills, and opportunities for employment and social dialogue. If the right skills at all levels must be developed, they will have to be assumed by the education and training systems. Europe has to anticipate needs and encourage the development of skills and other measures to support job creation in the green economy (Document “New Skills Agenda for Europe”).
