Project Description

#GREEN_SKILLS aims to achieve several overarching goals. Firstly, it seeks to educate students about the objectives outlined in the 2030 Agenda, emphasizing the importance of global sustainability. Additionally, it aims to advocate for the integration of ‘green’ education into vocational training, preparing students for environmentally conscious careers. Moreover, the project strives to cultivate a sense of awareness, critical thinking, and dedication to sustainability among younger generations. It particularly focuses on reaching out to disadvantaged or vulnerable groups, providing them with training opportunities in fields related to ecological transition. Furthermore, #GREEN_SKILLS has specific objectives tailored to enhancing professional training in the ‘green’ sector. This involves implementing structured courses such as sustainability and circular economy analysis, as well as environmental management. By doing so, it aims to equip students with the necessary skills to thrive in sustainability-focused professions. Another key aspect of our project is ambition to share and replicate successful outcomes on a broader scale, particularly at the European level. It also endeavors to introduce students to emerging concepts like the circular economy and bioeconomy, broadening their understanding of potential career paths in these areas. Ultimately, #GREEN_SKILLS aims to bridge the gap between traditional education and the evolving needs of the workforce, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the professions of the future.
