Sustainable Competences for learners of all ages

Education and training, like all sectors, must take action to respond to the climate emergency.

Learners of all ages need opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live more sustainably, embrace healthier lifestyles and contribute – both individually and collectively – to the green transition.  

Acquiring sustainability competences, can help children, young people and adults to understand challenges related to climate change and the environment, reflect on their behaviours, and engage in action for a sustainable future.

The European competence framework on sustainability contains a proposal for these kind of competences . This framework called GreenComp can be used in edu­cation and training programmes and policies in formal, non-formal and informal settings.

Are you interested? The framework can be downloaded through the Environmental Sustainability Learning page.
