“The Green Deal for a Sustainable Future” critically depends on green skills - that is, skills for working in a green economy; and skills for helping to bring about a green, just economy - and on the teachers and trainers tasked with skilling youth for these transformations.
This session debates the following key questions:
- What are the “green skills” that current and future generations entering the world of work need to thrive in the green economy and handle the threat that climate change poses to economic stability and sustainability?
- What competencies and dispositions do teachers and trainers need to prepare learners for sustainable development and the green jobs of the future?
- Which enabling conditions need to be put in place to support teachers for enacting these transformations?
