Green education and green skills serve as a catalyst for transformation. EU4Green is introducing innovative teaching methodologies, notably the development of micro-credentials modules. A multi-stakeholder needs assessment supports the identification of topics relevant for the Western Balkan economies. These modules are designed to foster critical green skills, encapsulating core areas such as environmental awareness, circular economy, sustainable agriculture. Furthermore, life-long learning can build and strengthen capacities on operational management and implementation processes and addresses transversal skills to deal with changing demands in work life.

The challenge lies in addressing the skills gap and education quality in the Western Balkans. The region has made progress in its educational landscape, yet there is still much to do to align with global standards. Therefore, EU4Green is dedicated to enhancing the quality and relevance of formal education and promoting the acquisition of additional competencies. The project is investing in initiatives to raise teaching standards, enrich teacher training, and boost continuous professional development.

Mission of EU4Green is to drive towards green, sustainable economies in the Western Balkans. Through the commitment to high-quality green education, the aim is to equip future generations with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in a green economy.
