European Commission is launching the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and inviting all stakeholders to join the Coalition and take action to reduce the digital skills gaps in Europe.

Today the Commission is launching the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and even before the initiative is launched - 39 organisations came forward and made 43 pledges to take action on reducing the digital skills gaps in Europe. The Coalition is a multi-stakholder partnership involving Member States, companies, social partners, NGOs and educational establishments – to help meet the high demand for digital skills in Europe which are essential in today's society and at the workplace.

All organisations, groups or government bodies taking action to boost digital skills in Europe can become members of the Coalition by endorsing the objectives and principles of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Members Charter online. If your organisation wishes to make a pledge to the Coalition you can do so on the Coalition's website.

The following organisations are making pledges at the launch of the Coalition on the 1st of December. For a description of all pledges see the attached list. More information including links will be added at a later stage.
