Technical-Vocational Education for Sustainable Development in Manitoba
Tomorrow Now: Manitoba's Green Plan recognizes the need to instill "green skills, knowledge and values within our existing and future workforce."
This will require, among other things, "advancing... technical and vocational education and training [TVET] in support of the transition to a green economy."
In preparation for making this commitment, Manitoba Education asked IISD to undertake an exploration into how technical-vocational schools and programs across the province are incorporating sustainable development into the education and training of their students, including school policies, management and teaching practices. The review identifies promising practices and barriers, and presents a number of suggestions for strengthening education for sustainable development (ESD) in TVET.
