Supporting the Green and Digital Transitions in and through Education and Training
The European Commission’s initiatives on a European Education Area to be achieved by 2025 and the new Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027), are aimed to strengthen the contribution of education and training to the EU’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis, and help build a green and digital Europe.
The initiatives propose more investment and stronger cooperation of Member States to help all Europeans, of all ages, benefit from the EU’s rich education and training offer.
Transition to an environmentally sustainable as well as a more digital world will have significant social, economic and employment impacts;
Enabling profound change in individuals’ behaviour and skills, starting with the education and training systems and institutions;
Education and training institutions adopting green and digital dimensions in their development;
Investments to integrate environmental sustainability and advanced digital skills across all levels in education and training;
Investments to ensure that education and training infrastructures are prepared to deal with these changes;
Reorienting education and training institutions to a whole-school approach;
Creating inclusive, healthy, sustainable educational settings.
How do you think the European Education Area and the Digital Education Plan contribute to Europe’s green and digital transformation as essential elements for recovery and future growth?

Event reportIssues raised by participants - Education for Sustainable Development is very relevant for the green transition and to aid for a change in behaviour which is required to a positive environmental change and to find a balance between Environment, Economy and Society. This is important for all learners, both formal and informal. - A lot of kids in the present generation will most likely have “green jobs”, and at the moment they are not being sufficiently trained to have the skills needed for sustainable development in schools. - With regards to digital literacy, training should be extended to all stakeholders in schools (including subject coordinators etc..) as a lot of them still have a very narrow-minded definition of the use of technology in schools, especially post-covid. - An important consideration in all areas of the curriculum is processing and content. Processing has to be pointed out and taught for it teaches the learners how to think. Bloom’s taxonomy of learning starts off from the lowest level of learning, that is to remember what you understand, apply, analyse, evaluate and finally create… - It is important that when developing strategies, stakeholders (State, Independent and Church schools) are consulted not only individually but together, so that resources are maximised and the different players collaborate for better outcomes.
