Green Skills are ‘the knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a society which reduces the impact of human activity on the environment’(Cedefop, 2010a).



We are developing the first open and multilingual e-learning platform for FIREFIGHTERS on GREEN SKILLS.



This e-learning platform will be available here in five languages (English, Danish, Lithuanian, Greek and Spanish) in May 2023. Meanwhile, if you are interested in following the project development, we invite you to regularly visit this website.

Third project meeting


On 23rd and 24th November, the third transnational meeting of the European project Green Skills for Firefighters took place in Alcala de Guadaira (Spain).

In this meeting, the delegates from the nine partner organisations evaluated the feedback from the firefighters from five countries who have been testing the e-learning platform during the last months. Based on their feedback, the project partners defined the improvements to be implemented on the e-learning platform before its publication.

During the meeting in Alcala de Guadaira, the delegates from the nine partner organisations also visited the local fire station and learned more about Alcala de Guadaira Fire and Rescue Service.



Second project meeting


On 19th April, the second transnational meeting of the European project Green Skills for Firefighters took place online.

In this second meeting of the project, the delegates from the nine partner organisations evaluated the current development of the e-learning content and revised the guidelines for the translation and testing of the e-learning content with firefighters from five EU countries.

Soon, the first development will be completed, and the e-learning platform will be tested with firefighters from five EU countries.



Kickoff meeting

On 26th November, the kickoff meeting of the European project Green Skills for Firefighters took place online.

In this first meeting of the project, the delegates from the nine partner organisations established the guidelines and work plan for the development of the e-learning platform.

Once the first development is completed, the e-learning platform will be tested with firefighters from five EU countries. The firefighters will first complete the e-learning and afterwards, they will put in practice what they have learnt by implementing some measures of environmental sustainability in their fire stations.
