Greening TVET

Parent terms: Greening, Technical and vocational education and training

Greening TVET is an essential and cross-cutting theme for sustainable development. It refers to the efforts to reorient and reinforce existing TVET institutions and policies in order to reinforce achievement of sustainable development. Thus, greening TVET acknowledges the relationship between sustainable development and green development and clarifies different definitions of green jobs and green skills as well.

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.
