In recent times, attention on sustainability is increasingly growing. The Next Generation EU dedicates great part of its funds to ecological and green transition, while the new European Green Deal provides an action plan to make the EU’s economy sustainable, in line with SDGs from Agenda 2030. In order to seize these opportunities, it is essential to create flexible and updated education and training opportunities in the sector of green tourism.
The project has a duration of 24 months and its main target groups are people that obtained a tourist qualification and never entered the job market or lost their job and NEETs.
These are the project objectives:
1. Developing competences in the field of green tourism through the creation of 3 international CVET curriculum focused on sustainable hospitality and services, ecological transition, valorisation of territories and communities;
2. Increasing the quality and relevance of CVET training activities;
3. Enhancing the exchange and cooperation between CVET providers and companies and organisations active in the field of green tourism at international level, boosting their ability to operate in transnational cross-border and cross-sectoral synergies;
4. Deepening the interest and motivation of potential VET learners towards green jobs in the tourism sector and continuous education and training.
The project brings together 6 European partners with experience in the CVET and sustainable tourism fields
- Leading partner, IFOM Soc. Coop. Sociale, Italy
- EBA, Portugal
- Europroodos educational group single member private company, Greece
- Ecosystem Europe Association, Bulgaria
- Dolnoslaska Federacja Organizacj Pozarzadowych, Polonia
- Nida culture and tourism information centre “Agila”, Lithuania
With the G4T project, we strive to create trans-European knowledge around green skills acquisition in the tourist sector so that we can contribute to the achievement of the sustainable development goals, accomplishing a change of mindset around the tourist industry.
