”GLO-VET – Making vocational education promote global responsibility and sustainable actions”, shortly called GLO-VET project, aims at tackling the most serious issue of our time – sustainable development and particularly climate change – by developing the professional skills of teachers in vocational colleges to integrate these topics in their teaching. Collaborative learning and gamification to motivate students and teachers will be our tools.
Sustainable development is already a part of the vocational curriculum, but inspiring and easy models
are needed to carry out the whole learning process that is needed for our students to become as ambassadors for sustainability. It is important for an individual VET student or staff member to feel connected to the wider global (SDGs), European and local, municipality and regional sustainability plans.
More about the Sustainable Development Goals here
The direct and indirect participants of the project are VET teachers and students in the partner schools.
More than 60 VET teachers

The UN Sustainable Development Goals will be explained here easily to understand for the students. Clicking on further information will lead to a webpage with the material related to that SDG.
WEBSITE AS A TOOL
Technology can be the media to reach to more people (students and schools/organisations), to broad expectations and ideas, expand content and new thoughts and also get feedback. And all this will happen in our (your) site.
Through gamification of the contents, students can experience how much they know about each SDG. By decision-making and answering and guessing they will get through the contents related to the project.
For VET teachers to learn new pedagogical methods to mainstream UN sustainable development goals in their teaching, network with other teachers and share their experiences and good practices
For VET students to develop their key competences, including social and intercultural competences, critical thinking and creativity, and to act collaboratively as responsible global citizens for a sustainable future
Schools and Institutions
For partner organisations to develop a whole school approach, and to ensure social and environmental responsibility of educational institutions taking part in the project
