New Policy Briefing: Learning For A Green Future
Watch the interview with the author of the ETF briefing “Learning for a green future”
In a new policy briefing, the ETF presents its vision of vocational education and training (VET) in the context of sustainable development and green growth.
Vocational education and training (VET) can make an important contribution to help individuals and economies to benefit from green growth.
VET is instrumental in moderating the changes in labour markets and in the skills profiles that come with the green transformation of our economies.
For the economies and individuals to benefit from green growth, vocational education and training needs to anticipate and respond to the changes in labour markets and in the skills profiles that come with reducing the ecological footprint of our economies.
These are the main messages of a new ETF policy briefing “Learning for a green future”.
The publishing of new ETF policy briefing coincides with Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 20-22 June 2012.
