"Green TVET" on a mission

An Giang

Awareness Raising for the topics Green Skills and Green Jobs was top of the agenda in five of the southern TVET colleges during the last weeks. Supported by the international Greening TVET consultant, Mrs. Stefanie Gendera, the green topics were addressed in our partner colleges starting from An Giang up to Ninh Thuan. The focus of the mission was put on energy and resource efficiency but also covered knowledge on sustainability issues and potentials of Green Jobs for the graduates and the colleges.

During two days in the colleges the teachers and the students elaborated green visions and were asked to develop ideas and address challenges. With enacting the Vietnamese Green Growth Strategy in 2012 the legal framework is in place to integrate green knowledge into curricula and day to day live. A change in awareness and behavior towards more environmental friendly habits is emphasized and will be further boosted in future.

An Giang College refers to the mission on their website:
