Empowering educators and community leaders to act on climate change

The ACTION project aims at bridging the alarming gap between awareness and action on climate change by developing a holistic framework that would allow to boost the acquisition and development of global and transversal skills on climate change related topics, among VET providers, local authorities and NGOs in nine different countries representing various regions, which are experiencing the impact of climate change.

In doing so, the following key objectives will be sought, among other horizontal priorities, by the ACTION partnership:

  • Upskill educators and community leaders´ competences with necessary skills on how climate change can be better taught and integrated into targeted VET sectors (i.e. Tourism, Health and Energy) but also in community-based actions;
  • Provide a set of innovative and cutting-edge training curriculum and educational resources, available in digital and open media, to empower educators, community leaders, learners and citizens.

During its 36-month lifetime, ACTION will directly and indirectly positively impact:

At least


educators and community leaders

At least


learners and citizens 

At least


stakeholders across Europe
