Green Workshop on green skills in the Mediterranean: Education and research for renewable energy

12-13 June 2024, Algiers (Algeria) – Applications are now open for the Integration of Green Skills in Higher Education and Research for Renewable Energy workshop organised by the UfM in collaboration with Algeria’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESRS), the European Training Foundation (ETF) and Paeradigms. Taking place in Algiers on 13 and 14 June 2024, it aims to strengthen sustainable thinking and promote a just transition by encouraging innovation in higher education and research.

Education plays a pivotal role in the green and just transition. This requires a holistic approach with the revamping of higher education as well as vocational and continuous professional development schemes through policies, institutional strategies, curriculum development, research, innovation, and green campus initiatives.

The workshop will focus on:

  • Transversal green skills that change mindsets and address the root causes of inequality that sustain climate vulnerability. Effective integration necessitates a robust policy environment, a culture of dialogue, and the political will of both state and non-state actors to disrupt unsustainable systems.
  • Technical green skills linked to renewable energy from two perspectives: a technical one and a policy-level one that looks at national frameworks and sustainability. This integration is essential to ensure that these institutions can effectively contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and enhance the employability of their graduates.


12-13 June 2024 at University of Science and Technology Houari Boumedienne (USTHB), Algiers
