Going green: GRETA – ETF Network for Excellence for VET institutions
GRETA – Greening Responses to Excellence through Thematic Actions – is an initiative supporting the greening of vocational education and training (VET) as a response to the green and digital transitions. GRETA falls within ETF Network for Excellence (ENE).
- The green transition concerns reducing carbon emissions, improving energy efficiency, and promoting renewable energy sources, while the digital transition involves the integration of digital technologies in society.
- Skills for the green transition encompass technical knowledge and transversal skills, as well as knowledge, values, and attitudes that enable professionals to effectively use technologies and processes and make pro-environmental decisions in both their work and personal lives.
- The greening of VET refers to the gradual process of aligning training practices, culture, and institutional operations with the principles of environmental sustainability.
