Green Education


One of the seven flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 strategy is to develop an agenda for new skills and jobs to modernise the labour market and facilitate the transition to a greener economy. Green skills are at the heart of the EU strategy for moving forward.

According to the EU employment strategy and the South Tyrol’s sustainability policy, highest priority is to be placed on securing the necessary green and environmental skills to allow the economy, environment and society to balance resource use, human competence and economic prosperity.
