The project’s mission is to develop the skills and competences of diverse urban actors in being capable of responding to unexpected challenges. In this framework, the project aims to develop an innovative training model for VET trainers/educators to assist them to acquire the skills and competences on how to deal, in their cities, with the unexpected global challenges faced, e.g. the COVID-19 pandemic. The training model will be combined with training materials with digital means, i.e serious game and e-learning portal, video narratives, digital case study report cards, all available as an OER in the project’s e-learning portal. The project’s results will contribute toward one of the most important global need of overcoming climate change and environmental protection.
It will directly contribute to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (17 Goals of Sustainable Development) with main focus on Goal 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities and Goal 17 Partnerships for the Goals. To achieve this, the following objectives are set:
  • To develop an innovative training model for VET trainers to give them the tools, guidance, and proper support to train urban actors (city decision- makers, mayors, city officials, city council members, local policymakers, city consultants, advisors, counselors, relevant authorities, NGOs, international institutions).
  • To directly train VET trainers to develop the knowledge, skills, and competences to train urban actors and enhance their future effect in training about sustainable cities.
  • To contribute to developing the urban actors’ skills in building sustainable and resilient cities and have the flexibility on responding to challenges, e.g. the Covid-19 pandemic.
