Asociación GO GREEN, partner of the KA2 Erasmus+ project “Green Job Growth”, is pleased to announce the release of the “Pedagogy and Competences Guide”.
In today’s world, sustainable development is not just a slogan, it’s an urgent global necessity. As the world moves towards a sustainable, low-carbon model, the demand for a workforce with green skills is growing.
The Green Job Growth (GJG) project aims to create a new wave of youth workers. These people are not only environmentally aware, but also skilled in sustainable practices.
At the heart of the GJG project is the ‘Pedagogies and Competences Guidebook’ (PR1). This guide recognises the key role youth workers play in shaping the leaders of tomorrow. PR1 goes deep, offering a holistic view of the project’s main objective: to equip young people with green skills for a sustainable future. It doesn’t just skim the surface, but delves into the nuances of non-formal learning methods related to green skills.
A meticulous data collection process was used to ensure the completeness of the guide. This included extensive online questionnaires and in-depth face-to-face interviews with committed youth workers. A commendable 130 youth workers from the three partner countries contributed to this research. The invaluable data from this research paved the way for the ‘Key Competencies and Methodology Matrix’. This tool aims to highlight the key knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to effectively deliver green skills to youth.
We invite you to take a deep look into our research findings. Start with a snapshot of our online survey results, followed by detailed answers to each question. You’ll also find insights from our face-to-face interviews, shedding light on the evolving landscape of green skills education in Europe.
We hope you’ll find the guide both enlightening and relevant. We invite you to download and explore its contents.
