Greening TVET for sustainable development: UNEVOC virtual conference

UNEVOC e-Forum, 22 October - 2 November 2012

The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is organizing a moderator-driven discussion from 22 October to 2 November 2012 on the UNEVOC e-Forum. The topic of the discussion is ‘Greening TVET for sustainable development’.

The discussion seeks to explore the concept of greening TVET and gather feedback and experiences on this issue from the international TVET community. The input from participants will be synthesized and summarized into a final synthesis report, which will provide directions for future research and programme work in this field. Your active participation in the discussion would be most gratefully received and we would also like to encourage you to circulate this event in your network.
