Recognizing Green Skills in Non-formal Learning Settings

UIL, September, 6 2016

‘Green skills’ have emerged as a response to global sustainable development challenges linked to environmental protection, economic development and social inclusion. As a result, many countries are involved in fostering their citizens’ and workers’ ‘green skills’.  There is need to develop policies that offer clear directions on how to provide recognition, validation and accreditation (RVA) of these ‘skills’, including those acquired in formal and informal economic sectors.

The publication of the study “the development of a model for the effective inclusion of green skills in accredited competences”  is scheduled to be launched at the fifth World Forum for Lifelong Learning, St. Petersburg 25 May 2017.
