Our common goal is to create a shared understanding of green careers and the skills required, and to raise awareness of these professional fields among young women at all levels of education as well as encourage them to pursue careers in this field.
We want to help promote the green economy and related jobs, increase the proportion and visibility of women in green jobs, and thus also change the perspective on gender equality in those jobs.
WELCOME to the Projectwebsite of the
Erasmus+ Project “Women4Green”
The project “Women4Green – Women in Power for a Green Economy” draws on the sustainable development agenda and the SDG’s aiming at raising young women’s awareness and interest in green economy jobs and empower them to decide for a job in this field providing them with the knowledge required to do so.
Green economy is the economy of the future. To achieve a green economy, innovation is needed on the one hand, and the workforce must be prepared for future jobs on the other hand. In this context women are considered an important component in the development towards a green economy, offering them new and valuable opportunities. To make a significant contribution in this regard, young women need to be addressed at the career guidance stage, and career guidance needs to be adapted to include the emerging new green jobs and focus on gender equality in this regard.
The open-source access to all project results will be guaranteed for at least 5 years after project end. Our aimed impact is to initiate a broad debate on interesting and empowering women for green economy jobs and thus accomplishing change and adjustments in career orientation as well as in recruiting.
