EQAVET Annual Network Meeting 2022 Paris, 9-10 June 2022


On 9 and 10 June 2022, the EQAVET Annual Meeting was held in person in Paris, after two years of on-line meetings, due to the pandemic, in which EOPPEP participated, as the designated (law 4115/2013) National Reference National Point. The meeting, which was organised and coordinated by the European Commission and the Secretariat of the EQAVET Network, was attended by representatives of National Reference Points (NRPs) from 24 member states as well as members of the European Commission, the European Training Foundation (ETF), CEDEFOP, representatives of the Social Partners and experts.

Green Transition and enhancement of Quality in every aspect of Vocational Education and Training

Based on the new EU guidelines for sustainable competitiveness, inclusive growth and active citizenship, Member States have been invited to report on progress in the implementation of the 2020 EU Council Recommendation on Vocational Education and Training and the Osnabrück Declaration.

At the same time, the ambitious goal of making the European continent the first with a neutral energy footprint by 2050, leads European policy to adopt "green" skills for Vocational Education and Training. At the same time, the "green transition" is accompanied by the enhancement of "transversal skills", such as basic STEM skills (Science Technology Engineering and Math) as well as "civic skills", such as environmental awareness. To this end, the European Commission has recently published a "European Sustainability Competence Framework" (GreenComp)  https://publications.jrc.ec.europa.eu/repository/handle/JRC128040
