Green Skills Research and Planning Course
About this Course
Aims and Outcomes
The Green Skills Research and Planning course forms part of the Green Skills program (funded by the Green Fund) and aims to establish and support a network of organisations and individuals working on green skills matters by:
- sharing green skills research and planning methods and lessons;
- coordinating green skills research, policy inputs and interventions;
- building capacity in participating individuals and organisations.
The intended outcomes are to:
- understand current practice in green skills planning, research, policy and practice internationally and in South Africa;
- evaluate and apply different methods for anticipating and studying green skills needs; and
- incorporating them into organisational and sector plans.
The above will be located within national, sectoral, provincial, local and workplace/community contexts. Participants will be guided in developing outputs needed by their organisations.
