The project's awareness campaign is addressed to potential VET learners with fewer opportunities, CVET organizations and staff, and stakeholders to raise awareness in the framework of the EU Green Deal for sustainable tourism and EU Strategy on Sustainable Tourism It will consist of online and offline events in all the project countries. The aim is to promote and discuss the framework of sustainable tourism provided by the EU Green Deal and the EU Strategy on Sustainable Tourism, focusing on the target group's needs. It will consist of conferences, seminars, world cafés, and round tables tailored to the target group of potential learners managed in each country.
The first in-person partner meeting took place on 2022.10 16-17 in Bologna, Italy. The 6 European partners shared their knowledge, discussed the project progress, and divided the upcoming tasks of project implementation.
The timetable of the flexible modular curriculum and blended gamified CVET course on green skills for sustainable tourism was determined.
In recent times, attention to sustainability is increasingly growing. The Next Generation EU dedicates a significant part of its funds to ecological and green transition. At the same time, 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 tourism qualification and never entered the job market or lost their job and NEETs.
These are the project objectives:
1 - Developing competencies 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
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 an 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
With the G4T project, we strive to create trans-European knowledge around green skills acquisition in the tourism sector to contribute to achieving sustainable development goals, accomplishing a change of mindset around the tourist industry.
