UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference: Greening TVET for sustainable development

Report of the UNESCO-UNEVOC online conference 22 October to 2 November 2012

From 22 October to 2 November 2012, a moderator-driven discussion was held on the topic of greening TVET for sustainable development. Moderated by Mr Kai Gleissner from the Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany, a UNEVOC Centre, the virtual conference brought together almost 150 participants from more than sixty countries.

Various issues in greening TVET for sustainable development were discussed during the twelve-day conference. The discussion identified the relationship between sustainable development and green development, and clarified different definitions of green jobs and green skills. Participants also shared different examples of greening TVET, and highlighted that greening TVET does not only consist of developing green jobs and greening TVET concepts, but that it should also incorporate societal and cultural aspects.
