Open Public Consultation

In September 2020, the Commission will adopt a new Digital Education Action Plan to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and to further promote high-quality, accessible and inclusive education and training in the digital age. 

This event is part of a series of outreach events complementing the EU-wide public consultation on the new Digital Education Action Plan during the months of June to September. The public consultation aims to engage stakeholders from different backgrounds, including education and training organisations, civil society and industry. 

The consultation will inform the new Digital Education Action Plan and gather the views and experiences of citizens, institutions, organisations and companies during the coronavirus crisis. The consultation was open until 4 September 2020 in 23 official EU languages.

Join the debate on Twitter using the hashtags #DEAP and #EUDigitalEducation.

The Action Plan contributes to the European Commission’s broader ambition to create a European Education Area by 2025.
