Greening TVET

The process of greening TVET institutions invites those involved in training and learning to engage in a whole-institution approach. This approach seeks to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that can lead to more sustainable practices in the community, the workplace and other settings where knowledge and skills could be applied. It can also lead to obtaining professional qualifications or proofs of learning that reflect environment-friendly skills. As a whole, the approach develops enabling capacities that make people active members of green economies, sustainable and climate resilient societies, and enable them to pursue lifelong and decent work.

UNESCO-UNEVOC, Greening TVET: A practical guide for TVET institutions, 2017

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.
