The Expert Forum of # ECIS21 will be about the relationship and contribution of the CCIs to the European Green Deal, as well as the skills and competencies required to meet these new challenges. This first part of the ECBN expert forum tries on the one hand to highlight the challenges and on the other hand already shows good examples of how the European creative industries react to the existing challenges and coming crisis. The second part of the Expert Forum concentrates on the new skills and competences needed to face this challenges and presents in an interactive session the latest developments of the DeuS project.

CCIs Green Deal

This part of the ECIS21 will open a broad discussion on the role and tasks of the European creative industries to contribute and support the European Green Deal. There is no doubt that the European economy needs to be rebuilt to meet the challenges and the changes necessary to create a better, more resilient and more sustainable environment.We believe that the CCIs play a decisive role in these transformational processes, on the one hand as pioneers in technological developments and on the other hand because they creative entrepreneurs are constantly working on innovative solutions. For this reason, the ECBN believes that the European Union must encourage these efforts by directing its activities towards projects of the creative talents and potentials of Europe.
