Shaping digital education policy

Ms Zalewska stresses the need to further train teachers by strengthening their digital skills and critical thinking. She also emphasises the need to improve children and young people‘s media skills to enable them to assess and overcome the dangers posed by fake news, cyber-bullying, radicalisation, cyber-security issues and fraud.

Impacts of EU rules on the free movement of workers and services

On Monday, the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development will vote on ECR rapporteur Ruža Tomašić’s opinion on intra-EU labour mobility as a tool to match labour market needs and skills. For the ECR, better targeting of EU funds would support worker mobility, ensuring better use of the information available and improving the collection and use of data on the patterns of labour mobility flows and imbalances within the labour market and recalls that maintain farming employment as a key role in keeping rural economies alive.

Vote: Monday @ 5 pm


A united EU response in support of democratic change in Belarus

On Wednesday, the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Sub-committee on Human Rights and the Delegation for relations with Belarus will debate a possible EU response in support of democratic change in Belarus.

The ECR also co-authored the European Parliament’s resolution on the continuous violations of human rights in Belarus that was adopted on Thursday, 26 November.

Debate: Tuesday @ 4.45 pm
