Micro-credentials as a regional ALE strategy: ensuring gender equality in the green transition?

Event Details

Women are underrepresented in the green sector and often lack the relevant skills profiles to tackle the green transition in the labour market. Regions and local authorities are vital in addressing this challenge. Micro-credentials have been used at the local and regional level as a flexible and targeted tool in lifelong learning to address specific skills shortages. Is it therefore possible for micro-credentials to address the green skills gap from a view of gender parity? If so, how?
