Future Skills of EU Green Deal
The EU Green Deal, a holistic approach to deal with the extensive challenges of climate change, and its importance is undisputable – but how can the ambitious sustainability goals be met?
The EIT Cross KIC initiative and SRH University of Applied Sciences Berlin have jointly developed a white paper, which analyzes essential future skills to meet the requirements of the EU Green Deal.
The conducted survey with experts from industry, academics and politics in affected domains has identified the necessity of specific training and education to develop new overall skills (e.g., interdisciplinary and system thinking). Those new overall skills are critical success factors for the prosperous implementation of the EU Green Deal in all areas of life.
