Project description:

The European Commission has set the ambitious goal of achieving the climate neutrality by the year 2050 (Green Comp/2020). This aim can only be achieved if respective initiatives are started right now and ignite relevant changes in the understanding, perception and implementation of environmental-friendly attitudes are implemented throughout all the levels of the entire economy. The need of transition to a “greener” both production and consumption has been at the agenda of not only developing, but also already developed countries and economies (UNESCO/2017). The United Nations has adopted a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. Goal 9 defines emerging need to update infrastructure and retrofit industries to convert them to more sustainable initiatives. This can be achieved through the increased efficiency of the use of the resources and adoption of clean solutions within industrial processes by 2030. Goal 12 defines sustainable management of natural resources by 2030. The emerging need of the shift towards resource efficient economy and processes requires changes introduced on a systemic level. By 2030 1 million jobs will be created because of a shift towards low carbon economy. This will result in the need of either reskilling or upskilling of more than 120 million people living in the EU in the period of the next 5 years (EC/2020). The changes needed are starting to be visible right now, today. New set of skills, both soft and technical, are becoming an emerging need. Those skills will make it possible to take an active part in the economic activities, and change the way people live, described as “green culture”, is also needed (Green Comp/2020). According to UNESCO, green skills in the workplace can lead to the increased resilience and adaptability of all levels of employees that will contribute to green growth, planetary health and societal resilience (UNESCO/2017). The positive impact on the environment will require new set of skills for many of the future jobs. EnviroVET plans to contribute and support this shift by providing relevant knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to VET institutions, VET professionals and VET learners in order to develop a resource-efficient and sustainable society. Only through a common effort at all levels of the economy and industry, the real change could be made. We all, as the humanity, are equally responsible for making it happen.
