GTVET comprises economic, ecological and social aspects and thus contributes to sustainable development. It is a cross-cutting issue that plays a role in any occupational sector: in industry, handicraft, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, services and administration. GTVET contributes to the transition to green economies and green societies by providing green competencies in a holistic approach including formal, non-formal and informal learning environments.
