2nd European education summit, Brussel - Hoofdinhoud
Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, will host the second European Education Summit on 26 September 2019 in Brussels. This second edition will focus on the teaching profession.
What challenges are teachers facing today - and what are future developments we need to anticipate? Are teachers adequately recognised by society? Do they receive the support they need? What is their role in bridging education and active participation in society and labour market?
These are just some of the questions to be explored in a discussion led by teachers - along with ministers, academics and civil servants.
During the Summit, Commissioner Navracsics will present the Education and Training Monitor 2019. The Monitor investigates how well teachers are faring, and builds on - among other research - the latest results of the OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey data. Read the current edition of the Education and Training Monitor (2018) to learn more. As every year since 2001, we will also celebrate on 26 September the European Day of Languages.
The Summit will take place at:
Place du Mont Des Arts

Deze instelling van de Europese Unie kan worden beschouwd als het 'dagelijks bestuur' van de EU. De leden van de Europese Commissie worden 'eurocommissarissen i' genoemd. Elke eurocommissaris is verantwoordelijk voor één of meerdere beleidsgebieden. Momenteel zijn er 28 eurocommissarissen, voor elke lidstaat één. Samen vormen zij het college van eurocommissarissen. De eurocommissarissen moeten het belang van de Europese Unie als geheel behartigen, niet dat van hun eigen land.
De Europese Commissie mag als enige EU-instelling wetsvoorstellen indienen; zij heeft het zogenaamde recht van initatief. Daarnaast controleert de Commissie of de Europese wetgeving juist wordt toegepast in de lidstaten, onderhandelt zij in internationale organisaties als de Wereldhandelsorganisatie (WTO) i over de handel van de Unie met het 'buitenland' en is zij verantwoordelijk voor het beheer van de Europese begroting van ongeveer 140 miljard euro per jaar.
