It is increasingly self-evident that the priority for implementing a green transition, depends fundamentally on the availability of skills that are up to the challenges of our time.
The competencies must be of vision, planning, management and implementation skills.
Vision emerge as the driving skill behind the other levels of competences, without which it is not possible to shape the desirable future, underpinning the very scientific and social foundations of the green transition. As the same, it is not possible for companies to respond to market demand and be competitive in the green transition domaine, and to public administration to serve the public's interests in accordance with constitutional principles and with the path to UN SDGs.

In the context of the EU year of skills, the conference intends to deepen a policy oriented vision of the competences to be developed for the transition we need, in a cross-disciplinary and cross-society debate.
