These targets are:

(1) At least 78% of people aged 20 to 64 should be in employment,

(2) At least 60% of all adults should participate in training every year,

(3) The number of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion should be reduced by at least 15 million, including at least 5 million children.

In the joint commitment, signatories welcome the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan presented by the Commission in early March which sets out concrete actions to further implement the 20 principles of the Pillar.

It also proposes headline targets for employment, skills and social inclusion at EU-level to be achieved by 2030.
