Europa 2020 goals. *Employment- By 2020 the target is that 75% of 20-64 year-olds are employed. *Education- Reducing the rates of early school leaving below 10% and at least 40% of 30-34– year-olds completing third level education. *Climate and energy- Greenhouse gas emissions 20%, 20% of energy from renewable energy sources and 20% increase in energy efficiency.
How do they affect the rest of the world and Europe? Our ideas. *Employment- In 2010 the average employment rate for 20-64 year olds was about 68% so the rise to 75% is pretty huge considering that employment rates are still dropping in 2013. But if we do succeed, it would be great for the European overall development. Also if Europeans have more jobs the exchange of products and workforce with the rest of the world would also rise, which means that we would advance even more when compared to the rest of the world.
*Education- Investing in education has always been a good idea for us, completing these goals would greatly improve our workforce and overall development of Europe. *Climate and energy- Lowering of greenhouse gases means extra expenses in purchasing the needed equipment for the chimneys of factories but it is needed since we all want fresh air and the beautiful nature to stay the way it is.
