MORE SUSTAINABLE

PROJECT

Supported by the European Commission as part of the Programme for education, training, youth and sport – ERASMUS +, the project Training for Sustainable Food System Development – T4F aims to develop professional training based on the development of “green skills” in the food sector, in order to increase the number of jobs in sustainable development.

As highlighted at the European Commission’s High-Level Conference on Food 2030, our future food system should be more “sustainable, resilient, responsible, diversified and inclusive”. To do so, we must reconsider our production and consumption patterns.

In addition, the European Economic Strategy “Europe 2020” promotes smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. To this end, citizens must develop the skills and training necessary to work in a more sustainable way and to make a reality of the transition to a green economy. Food industry’s professionals are linked to the environment, and they are encouraged to make their methods healthier and more environmentally friendly.

The content of this project is the implementation of a new professional training focused on the development of green skills in order to requalify professionals in the food sector towards more “green thinking”. In addition, the development of green skills for a sustainable food system encourages not only environmentally sound management, but also the creation of sustainable jobs.
