Between 2012 and 2018 the number of jobs linked to the circular economy in the EU grew by 5% to reach around 4 million. Circularity can be expected to have a positive net effect on job creation provided that workers acquire the skills required by the green transition. Therefore, it is important to stimulate innovative learning and teaching practices in education and to increase the attractiveness of VET by strengthening the link between the educational world, society and work life. SCE-VET project has the intention to highlight substantial opportunities, insights and themes regarding Circular Economy (CE) and the link to social enterprises.
The project is aiming to inspire people to rethink and believe that linking principles of circular economy with social enterprises gives the right conditions to foster innovation and creativity. At the same time, actions to achieve social sustainability may unlock new markets, help retain and attract business and training partners, or be the source for innovation for new product or service lines.
The project SCE – VET aims to raise, across all partnership sectors, awareness about environmental and climate-change needs, challenges and potentials. Priority is given to developing VET competences in various sustainability-relevant sectors, focusing on green sectorial skills activities and methodologies. Through this project cooperation the partners will highlight social and behavioral changes and needs for attitudes, individual preferences, consumption habits and lifestyles.
Innovation Hive participates in the Higher Education Team, which will be responsible for the research activities (review, survey, questionnaires, analysis, evaluation).
