Launch of the «Skills for Green Transition» project in Moldova

 The development of skills, curricula and teaching capacities is crucial for the training of new professions in the field of renewable energies. This also applies to the LED partner country Moldova, at least if the desired acceleration of ecological change is to take place there. Together with the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the LED is supporting the Republic of Moldova on this path to sustainability. The project itself is being implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the local partner AED (Association Education for Development). See Project Sheet

At the event on 15 May in Chisinau, which was attended by representatives from state authorities, development partners, vocational schools, NGOs and the private sector, the measures required to encourage young people, especially women and girls, to choose a career in the field of renewable energies were discussed. In the planned project, the teaching of green skills goes beyond initial vocational training. It also focuses on the retraining and further training of adult employees and better opportunities for lifelong learning. 


The project will be implemented over the next three years and will support vocational schools in improving the technical capacities of teaching staff and systematically introducing environmental topics and environmentally sustainable practices at vocational schools, among other things. In addition, the project aims to establish a national dialogue on vocational education and green skills.
