Craftsmanship and Skills for the Future

The European Training Foundation (ETF), in collaboration with Michelangelo Foundation, UNESCO, UNIDO and the Union for the Mediterranean, will bring together stakeholders from regional and international organizations, crafts sector representatives, practitioners and policy-makers to share knowledge and perspectives on the future of crafts, with a focus on skills. Participants will be invited to contribute to a foresight process and to co-create recommendations to be featured in a joint publication being prepared in 2023 as part of the #EuropeanYearofSkills, focusing on skills in the craft sector internationally.

The event is upon invitation and will be held in presence in Scuola Professionale - Cometa Como (, a member of the ETF Network of Excellence in VET.
