Mountain areas are facing multiple transitions affecting their economies and labour markets. Many are experiencing population decline and loss of attractiveness, leading to brain drain and labour shortages. Climate change is also affecting a significant part of the mountain economy, particularly agriculture and tourism, and poses challenges in terms of training and sectoral restructuring. In addition, the green transition, which is essential for the sustainability of mountain areas, is driving the emergence of new sectors in mountain areas, for which it will be necessary to find the appropriate skills.

In 2023, the European Year of Skills, Euromontana intends to focus on the challenges and possible solutions for employment and skills in mountain areas. The conference “Skills for Mountains in Transitions” will explore the difficulties and opportunities in specific economic sectors, as well as solutions for attracting talents to mountain areas.

During the conference, Euromontana will give the floor to representatives of the European Commission, regional policy makers, researchers and practitioners who will discuss policy and practical solutions for attracting the talents needed in mountain areas in transitions.



A more detailled agenda will be avaible soon. The event will start at 14:30.

  • Keynote speech
  • Overview of the challenges and opportunities for skills and employment in mountain areas
  • Sharing good practice – how can we retain, attract, and create skills for mountains in transition?
  • How can policies contribute to strengthening skills in mountain areas?
  • Concluding remarks



Interpretation will be available in English and French. The event will take place at Euromontana’s office

Place du Champ de Mars, 2
1050 Brussels

Registration will open soon.
