Orienting Technical and Vocational Education and Training for Sustainable Development

Discussion Paper series 1
English | Français

This paper discusses the concept of technical and vocational training and its role in promoting and supporting sustainable development. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) takes on a complex and distinctive character with regard to sustainable development. TVET has always included elements of sustainability, especially in the way scarce training materials were conserved and waste materials were disposed. This historical commitment gives TVET a foundation upon which to build future commitments to sustainable practices. The manner in which production and consumption is managed can either contribute to sustainability or to practices and conditions that are not sustainable.
