The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is organizing an international forum on the role of the UNEVOC Network in transforming Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for a sustainable future. The forum also coincides with UNEVOC’s commemoration of its 10th year anniversary. <br/>The aim of the Forum is to strengthen the role of the UNEVOC Network in transforming TVET for a sustainable future and particularly to discuss the role of effective teaching and learning for advancing the greening TVET agenda, using the potential of the UNEVOC Network to achieve these connections. The Forum will provide an opportunity for UNEVOC Centres and the Global Network to share with each other recent developments, trends and prospects for green societies and the role of TVET teachers in the skilling process. It will also identify relevant approaches to empower TVET teachers to critically engage with the complexity of sustainability issues and mainstream these into their teaching processes so that learners can form their own opinions. The Forum will facilitate sharing of experiences, good practices and lessons learnt in integrating greening societies and economies into the TVET agenda.
