Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development / SUSDEV


General information about the project Chronicle Results Gallery
Project's characteristic features
Green skills will be promoted among different types of learners through lifelong learning channels and using new IT possibilities, starting from results of previous projects concerning curriculum development and sectoral  qualifications frameworks for three complementary subject areas conditioning better quality of life (ecology, food sciences and land management).
Fostering green skills improves quality of courses and positively influences qualifications framework descriptors. We have thus "the flywheel effect": educators gain momentum from a model for continuous improvement.
A systemic approach based on "complex adaptive systems" methodology will be used. It will give theoretical framework for designing, testing and putting into motion "self-organization" mechanisms within the consortium and support feedback mechanisms between the project and its environment. 
Project’s activities and outcomes will have anticipatory character, preparing target groups for future challenges and demands. Although various “green agendas” are present in public space, at the level of both education providers and labour market agents the awareness of the importance of sustainable development and of future needs for green skills and green jobs is still not too visible. Raising this consciousness shall lead to increased self-reflection on the resposibility for the future of our society.
