In the Sustainability Skills program, vocational education, business, governments and boosters in different regions are working to develop sustainable skills. These skills are needed to work on local sustainability transitions. In the regional initiatives, they are mapping together what skills are needed now and in the future. They are also developing practical solutions so that students in vocational education and workers in practice can acquire those skills.
Purpose of Sustainability Skills
It is essential that current and future workers are equipped with the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need in sustainability transitions. Sustainability Skills was created to bring together initiatives around 'learning in transitions' regionally. In the regions we work on new perspectives and solutions. With this program we support networks that, in a regional context, work cooperatively on transition. This involves boosting and scaling up educational innovation in secondary vocational, intermediate and higher vocational education as well as embedding it in business operations. With support from the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Goldschmeding Foundation for People, Work and Economy, Learning for Tomorrow has been working on Sustainability Skills since 2019.
