Last Wednesday, June 23rd, the third session of the Future Unlocked Conference took place online. Under the theme “The Future of Creative Skills – Sustainable Entrepreneurs´ Skills for CCIs and Change-Making Skills for Public Service”, participants had the chance to discuss about the skills gaps that exist among creatives and how educational programs address these needs. On the second track, together with the Creative Bureaucracy Festival, good cases and the need for creative management for a good, better and creative bureaucracy were examined.
After the introduction of the session, Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research and Culture, dedicated a few words to the assistants and highlighted the work being done by ECBN for the European CCI sector. The invited speakers, Rita Orlando, Pier Luigi Sacco, Lisa Lang and Noel Kirthiraj, highlighted the importance of creative skills not only for the CCIs and its professionals, but also for cross-sectorial development. The change that the educational system needs to undertake to foster and incorporate these competences was also discussed. From policy-making to real cases, the second of the discussed topics was the change-making skills for public service, exposed from several points of view by the hand of the invited speakers: Charles Landry, Ger Baron and Ursula Rosenbichler. One of the debated issues was how the change-making skills can help tackle the future of the public sector.
After the experts’ presentations, participants were invited to take part in the breakout rooms discussions, with Rita Orlando and Charles Landry hosting and leading the conversation. Finally, Rym Ayadi, from the Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA), offered his perspective on the matter. This 3rd day of conference was hosted by Bernd Fesel, ECBN Director.
