ECO-CENT aims to respond to the needs of iVET and cVET providers and members of the business community by providing targeted training to businesses on circular business models and VET trainers to support their continuous professional development in this domain.
Global strategies to achieve a circular economy often overlook the contributions of smaller, locally-led enterprises and the need for market-based solutions specific to emerging economies. Most mainstream business models operate the “take, make and dispose of” way of production and consumption. This is reflected in the vast majority of entrepreneurship or business development training resources.
To preserve valuable natural resources for future generations and conserve Biodiversity, active support for a circular economy transition is required, and iVET and cVET has a pivotal role in supporting that transition.
