About environment and competences

The “ecological” or “green” transition has become a key concept in current political debates (e.g. the European Green New Deal in August 2021), following that of “sustainable development” promoted by the Rio Summit of 1992. Whatever the precise term used, it underlines the need to integrate environmental concerns into production, consumption and our ways of living.

If we are to cope with the climate changes, what types of radical changes in occupations, firms and regional economic systems are to be expected? How will these changes impact workers’ career and firms’ practices, employment structures and work organisation, work routines and training provision? In order to provide an overview over what we know so far, this “In & Around” gathers several recent research materials together.
