The vision

The LEAF Project responds to the growing demand for Green skills in a world facing environmental challenges. It recognizes the prominence of sustainability-related professions and the rise of eco-sustainable companies, with a projection that one in five jobs will come from these sectors by 2023. GreenComps, competences for sustainability defined by the European Commission, are central to this shift.

In light of these changes, the LEAF Project focuses on innovative training methods through the Network Boomerang Technology platform. This interactive approach covers specific environmental and Green Economy skills, especially for Green Marketers. The platform offers diverse materials to promote active learning and critical thinking, ultimately guiding users in creating Green Marketing projects for real-world application. The methodology prioritizes thorough learning through user participation and mastery of the curriculum.

Objectives

Develop a methodology for professional training in specific Green profiles, with an initial focus on Green Marketers.

Revitalize professional training in Green skills by creating a standardized skills analysis, a platform, and teaching materials.

Target training operators and teachers from partner institutions for skill development.

Foster innovation in vocational education and prepare future Green professionals to meet evolving labor market demands.

Align vocational education with the labor market’s needs in the Green professions sector.

Target groups

Training operators

Adults and young adults

We will equip teachers and training operators with specialized Green skills training methods, enhancing their expertise to meet evolving labor market demands.

The primary focus of the LEAF Project is the ultimate beneficiaries of Green skills training – adults and young adults. Even if not directly involved in the project, they stand to gain from its research, creation, and implementation process.
