The Copenhagen Declaration Launched at the e-Skills Week final event

The European e-Skills Week 2012 – a pan-European campaign backed by the European Commission – came to its conclusion last Friday, 30 March 2012, after hundreds of exciting events and activities delivered across thirty-six countries.
As a result, the partners and stakeholders in European e-Skills Week have produced the e-Skills Copenhagen Declaration, which supports the objectives of the 2007 Communication from the Commission to the Council, the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions and is a complement to the e-Skills Manifesto.
The Copenhagen Declaration has received the endorsement of thirty eight organisations, and many more will join in supporting the implementation of a grass roots activities to deliver competiveness, productivity and growth to Europe, through a strong commitment to ensuring that all European citizens are equipped to work and participate in the digital economy of the 21st century.
The Declaration is a complement to the latest version of e-Skills Manifesto, which will be published in fully in June 2012 – an interactive version of the Manifesto may be found on line for comment.
