About 70 technical and vocational education and training (TVET) experts from around Asia and several European countries gathered in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from 2-5 July 2006 to synthesise and extend current examples of international best practice in reorienting TVET for sustainable development.
The international conference on “TVET for Sustainable Development – Opportunities and Challenges” was a contribution to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.
