NEMO has had an active role in shaping the Manifesto which outlines the goals and aims ofC-P4S. The partnership will promote learning opportunities and ‘on the job' training to strengthen the resilience of the sector and equip its professionals with the skills they need. There will be a particular focus on digital, green, entrepreneurial and technical skills as well as on arts and crafts. The partners involved have agreed on commitments and indicators to improve skills intelligence, new training programmes and the number of people trained. For instance, the partners will promote the mutual recognition of training paths across EU countries.
Organisations are welcome to endorse the Manifesto and by doing so they will automatically be part of the large-scale skills partnership for the Cultural and Creative Industries ecosystem and be kept informed of the further developments.

The manifesto outlines the unquantifiable but essential value of the Cultural and Creative Industries have for society that in economic terms represent over €477 billion in turnover annually, which translates to almost 4% of EU's GDP. It underlines the precarious situation of most organisations and professionals within the CCIs sectors with lack of security and a very high level of job insecurity and a lack of re- and upskilling opportunities.
All the organisations that support the Creative Pact for Skills (C-P4S) Manifesto, NEMO being one of them, recognise the importance of thriving talents and skilled workers in the European Cultural and Creative Industries ecosystem and all its sectors. Therefore, they decide to establish a large-scale partnership to promote and facilitate the re-skilling and up-skilling of the creative workforce, to support the aims of this manifesto, to mutualise and pool resources, and to engage in the concrete initiatives and actions it promotes.
The ambition is also to promote new learning models and more qualitative learning opportunities with a priority focus on digital, green, entrepreneurial skills, and with a special attention to on-the-job learning - in order to equip Cultural and Creative sectors’ professionals with key skills needed to address the current and future challenges faced by the ecosystem and secure individual career paths.
