"GrEAT project: green jobs as an educational leverage for a better society"

WHEN: 19th June 2019

WHERE: Marco Biagi Hall, Baraccano building, via Santo Stefano 119 –  Bologna

The conference was one of the events of GrEAT – Green Education for Active Talents, an Erasmus Plus project aimed at spreading the knowledge related to job and career opportunities offered to high school students by the “green economy” sector.

The first session of the conference was dedicated to the presentation of the project’s outputs and main results and at how these outputs and results can be framed in wider educational context, involving students, teachers, universities and the main educational bodies (especially the ones committed to environmental education) at local and regional level.

The second session was the occasion for a variety of territorial actors to discuss about the impact of green jobs on the society, also taking into account the role (active and potential) of the schools to promote green careers, while strengthening and making more effective the relationships between the education system and other social and economic stakeholders.
