2.1 Bringing green skills to curriculums - a regional focus


Anticipating market-based skill needs is key to adequately integrating sustainability and new green skills in VET curricula and training. The ever-evolving nature of the transition to the green economy and the scarcity of data on trends add another challenge to localized skill development strategies. This session will look closely at the approach used by countries within the ASEAN+3 region to adapt their vocational education and training policies and practices to the needs of the green and circular economy.
