GA number: 2023-1-PL01-KA220-VET-000151774

Funded by: Erasmus+      Duration: 1/12/2023 – 30/11/2025


Waste management has become a hot topic due to the huge amount of waste produced in Europe (EC, 2018). Annually, 5 tonnes of waste are produced by an average European and 60% ends up in the landfill, creating many environmental problems. Change is required and this can be achieved by a bottom-up approach through VET and the integration of environmental issues caused by waste management. Thus, VET providers/trainers need to be trained and educated on producing innovative learning material to promote engagement towards sustainable waste management.


The GROWS project aspires to foster environmental awareness by enhancing the ability of VET providers to implement eco-friendly practices, focused on sustainable waste management.


The toolkit equips VET providers and trainers with guidance on strategies, tools, and approaches for promoting and delivering green skills training and designing and implementing a green education action plan on waste management.

The e-learning Platform acts as an “one stop-shop” providing instant access to a full suite of gamified learning resources, including an intelligent tutor to help design a green education action plan, digital resources, OERs, and tools focused on sustainable waste management.

Τhe Training Program aims to empower providers/trainers with skills to design and implement green education action plans. The program includes theoretical and practical sessions, exploring resources like the e-learning platform and Toolkit.
