Vocational Excellence for a Green Europe: GREENOVET project conference

5 - 6 June 2024

The conference “Vocational Excellence for a Green Europe” is designed to delve into the pivotal role of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in fostering green innovation and sustainable practices. It is scheduled for 5-6 June 2024 in Graz and online.

There are no conference fees.

This conference is part of the GREENOVET project, an international project in the frame of ERASMUS+ KA3 with 18 project partners from 4 European countries that supports the development of Vocational Education and Training (VET) excellence in the field of green innovation across Europe. The overall objective is to connect actors at regional, national as well as transnational level with each other and with key stakeholders of local innovation and skills ecosystems.

This is achieved through the establishment of 4 “Centres of Professional Excellence” (CoVEs), in Austria, Finland, North Macedonia, and Portugal.

Questions the conference will address include: how VET can equip individuals with the essential skills needed in green innovation and sustainable practices? How does VET inspire innovation and provide the necessary tools for individuals to contribute to a sustainable future through entrepreneurial endeavors? Beyond the classroom, what is the central role of VET in instilling a culture of sustainability? How does it contribute to the European Green Deal? How does the collaboration with industries ensure that VET programs align with the demands of the growing green economy, preparing individuals for meaningful contributions in their respective fields? How does it keep individuals updated on the latest developments in green technologies throughout their careers?
