EuroSkills Herning 2025 promotional film launched



As one Competition closed, the countdown to another kicked off with style and excitement.


In a symbolic moment at the EuroSkills Gdańsk 2023 Closing Ceremony, the WorldSkills Europe flag was passed from Team Poland’s Dawid Miotk, Hotel Receptioning silver medallist, to Team Denmark’s Amalie Druekær Rasmussen, Restaurant Service silver medallist, starting the official countdown to EuroSkills Herning 2025.

Denmark is preparing to welcome around 700 Competitors from 32 countries to participate in 38 skill competitions in Herning, Denmark from 9 to 13 September 2025, in front of up to 100,000 spectators.

In addition to celebrating Europe's most talented young professionals, Denmark will use the opportunity of hosting EuroSkills to increase the focus on vocational training in Denmark, and also to emphasise how skills can help us rise to the global challenge of creating a sustainable future for our planet.

The Competition campaign was launched at the EuroSkills Gdańsk 2023 Closing Ceremony (9 September) with a promotional film, which was shown after the official Flag Handover.

In an impassioned speech at the Ceremony, former Prime Minister of Denmark and Chairman of EuroSkills Herning 2025, Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, said: “EuroSkills Herning 2025 has enormous potential to put vocational training at the top of the agenda and push for all the development and change we want to see in the Danish education system.”

“Skills are absolutely essential for the green transition. Therefore, we will do everything to ensure that EuroSkills Herning 2025 equips the young skilled workers of the future with the skills necessary to carry out the green transition. It is crucial if we are to ensure that we achieve everything we are talking about when it comes to creating a sustainable future,” Rasmussen added.
