Erasmus + – Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training


 1. Main objectives:

The aim of the project is to support the personal and professional development of tourism workers in partner countries. It will promote accessibility over time to a set of OERs on digital and green skills and guide the operators of the sector towards rethinking their business models in a circular key, exploiting new digital technologies, with the guidance of green-tech infusion coaches aligned in an international mobility. Finally, the partnership will disseminate the learning path and relative tools for digital and green upskilling.

 2. Main actions:

The intention is to co-design and implement a TRAINING PROGRAM FOR GREEN AND DIGITAL UPSKILLING FOR TOURISM OPERATORS and relative didactic tools consisting of OERs. From the episodes of the Educational TV program users will be able to access interactive video training pills, including narrative crossroads and a Green Tech-Infusion Toolkit to allow trainers to guide operators in rethinking business models following  alignment on green-tech infusion in a mobility.
