Greening of skills and economies for a successful transition to environmentally friendly, low-carbon development: What are the implications for TVET?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Moving towards a new sustainable development paradigm can sharpen countries’ competitiveness as well as stimulate the growth of a green technology market. Training of skills for sustainability, or green skills training, is becoming crucial for achieving green targets in economic development. This presentation will focus on some of the key results of a number of research projects conducted by the UNEVOC Centre (Hong Kong) in the Asia and the Pacific region, and, particularly, ways that the ‘greening of skills development for employability’ can be conceptualized and addressed in technical and vocational education (TVET), and by industry.
