The European Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a call for examples of good practice on the role of skills in empowering the green transition.
The call, entitled ’Green transition: education, training and skills’ aims to collect stories about how education, training and skills development is supporting the shift towards sustainable, clean, carbon-neutral circular economies and societies.
The aim is to provide ideas and inspiration for education and training policy-makers and practitioners in the EU neighbourhood and beyond.
The European Training Foundation (ETF) is looking, for example, for stories:
From enterprises in introducing new “green” technologies and production processes and developing the skills of their staff to apply them;
From training providers equipping teachers and trainers with up-to-date knowledge on environmental issues and green technologies;
From industries and sectors in introducing training standards or training courses developing green skills for the industry;
From public and private institutions in developing environmental awareness programmes, in coordination between different ministries and public bodies;
From public employment services in matching jobs with training provision and raising awareness about green business opportunities;
From schools that are becoming greener;
From public-private partnerships that work for green development.
