What to know about this project and why the Cluster participates in it?

DEGREBE is aimed at developing a digital educational package focused on the development of green skills and creating a guide for trainers and coaches to support the adoption of innovative approaches and digital technologies in education. So, as a "knowledge cluster" that is targeted at the talent needed for the green and digital transformation our mission is to help young students or professionals develop their green and transversal skills in whatever industrial sectors. In this case the partners objectives are focussed on the agriculture as one of the most affected by climate change challenges.

Throught this project we intend to contribute to the achievement of the task next generation of professionals working in green & agri sectors are capable of bringing the traditional knowledge to the future, based on new and innovative practices. This way, future green businesses will be more resilient to changes, both economical and climatic. Plus, they will be able to anticipate trends for the introduction of innovative practices and technologies. The project will last 2 years and a half. During this time, it will create innovative and digital educational material for trainers in green and agricultural topics and young people coming from the Gen Z.

What useful tools the students, young professionals and their trainers should expect from this project?
