Europeans face a number of changes such as the move to a climate-neutral economy, digitalisation and demographic shifts.

The Communication sets out how social policy will help deliver on the challenges and opportunities of today, proposing action at EU level for the months to come, and seeking feedback on further action at all levels in the area of employment and social rights.

Key actions in 2020 include: fair minimum wages for workers in the EU; a European Gender Equality Strategy and binding pay transparency measures; an updated Skills Agenda for Europe; an updated Youth Guarantee; a Platform Work Summit; a Green paper on Ageing; a Strategy for persons with disabilitie; a Demography Report; a European Unemployment Re-insurance Scheme.
