Green Vet Choices
The Green VET Choices project wants to raise awareness for urgent environmental challenges and, at the same time, foster interest in green VET careers.
There are many innovative green professions and VET offers related to environmental issues; however, the awareness of these possible and attractive career paths needs to be raised among current and potential VET learners in order to satisfy the labour market and societal demand for these specific professionals in the future.
Through an innovative learning and teaching approach combining environmental topics and green VET, the project fosters excitement and a sense of participation and thus enables important contributions to a more powerful fight against climate change.
The project will concentrate on increasing competencies necessary for these professions such as green and digital skills and will also offer a career guidance system as a comprehensive overview of possibilities and options in green VET.
The project will achieve its goals through:
- Creating an innovative learning methodology by combining proven didactic approaches
- Creating low-threshold, easy-to-access, non-formal learning opportunities
- Increasing the interest in green VET professions
- Raising environmental consciousness
- Empowering learners through their personal choices
- Increasing the disposition for environmentally friendly lifestyles
The Green VET Choices project promotes these aims and accelerates the awareness of the green sector among current and future VET learners. The methodology applied and results produced in the project will be Open Educational Resources (OER) that can be utilised by VET professionals across Europe and benefit current and potential VET learners as they are made aware of new and interesting green career options and can educate themselves on greener choices in their professions and future careers.
