BILT Workshop on Innovative European Initiatives for Greening TVET

23-24 October 2019, Paola, Malta

During the two-day BILT workshop hosted by Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology, nine institutions from eight European countries (Spain, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Malta and Netherlands) presented innovative examples of initiatives that address challenges related to greening TVET.

Tackling TVET challenges related to greening

Greening TVET is an emerging concept that has gathered momentum in the international community in the past years. This momentum is a reaction to – and is strengthened by – the evident need for change, particularly as the negative impacts of climate change become more apparent. TVET plays an important role in providing knowledge and skills to facilitate the transition to green economies and societies. The UNEVOC Network is at the forefront of promoting greening TVET in Member States, supported by UNESCO-UNEVOC’s Greening Technical and Vocational Education and Training: A Practical Guide for Institutions. The guide proposes approaches to implement a whole-institutional approach to greening TVET institutions, with a focus on greening the campus, curriculum and training, research, communities and workplace, and institutional culture.

The participants to the BILT workshop discussed and analyzed innovative practices from within and outside the UNEVOC Network that deal with current challenges related to

  • the growing demand for green skills from the labour market perspective and
  • the impact of integrating green skills into the curriculum.
For each presented example, participants were able to discuss the added value of the approaches, their impact on curriculum and standards, and their transferability to other countries. These examples will inform further activities within the UNEVOC Network, both within Europe, and in the forthcoming collaboration with Africa, and Asia and the Pacific.
