What lasting impact will the pandemic have on jobs and skills across Europe’s cities?

This question is at the centre of our first article of the year, linking the work of the Jobs and Skills and Digital transition Partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU.

Written by expert Eddy Adams, this article is the first of our series of articles based on the work of the 14 Partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU. 

Organised under the Productive city dimension of the New Leipzig Charter, it looks at how European cities have been adapting to the impact of COVID-19 on jobs.

About the series of articles

Structured around the three city dimensions of the New Leipzig Charter (the Productive, the Green and the Just City), the articles link Partnerships’ actions and activities with other relevant EU projects and initiatives supported by Cohesion Policy (including Urban Innovative Actions, URBACT or Article 7 cities benefitting from ERDF).

The articles demonstrate the key role of cities in the Urban Agenda for the EU and focus on specific actions they have led and implemented.

Overall, the articles aim at showcasing practices and experiences on how different tools and funding support can help cities face their challenges in a strategic way towards sustainable urban development.
