Case study: The GreenComp initiative

Case Study

The GreenComp initiative

The GreenComp initiative advocates for multi-stakeholder engagement, including civil society actors, in the European Competence Framework for Green Skills.

The framework provides guidance for learners and educators on what sustainability as a competency entails. The framework was informed by a Green Skills Survey that helped to map best practices in green skill provision across Europe, identify occupation-specific skills and transversal skills for a green economy.

GreenComp is responding to the ambitions set out in the European Green Deal by outlining twelve competencies organised into four areas.

Embodying sustainability values

  • valuing sustainability
  • supporting fairness
  • promoting nature

Embracing complexity in sustainability

  • systems thinking
  • critical thinking
  • problem framing

Envisioning sustainable futures

  • futures literacy
  • adaptability
  • exploratory thinking

Acting for sustainability

  • political agency
  • collective action
  • individual initiative
