    Empowering
    changemakers

    towards
    sustainability

    OBJECTIVES

    Project SDG NAVIGATOR aspires to raise individuals’ capacity to act as true agents of change for sustainability, reinforcing their social and ecological mindset and improving their skillset through an innovative, future-oriented training.

    The core objective is to develop:

    • a Sustainability Changemaker Competences Dictionary that maps and expands on key competences  for sustainability-driven entrepreneurship described in terms of knowledge, skills, and attitudes;
    • a Sustainability NAVIGATOR Learning Path that provides individuals with learning resources and changemaking  tools to strengthen their sustainability-oriented entrepreneurial competences and guide them through the entrepreneurial process and diverse stages, amplifying and broadcasting their impact;
    • the SDG NAVIGATOR Hub and Toolbox that offer an online open-access platform with learning resources and complementary learning paths on sustainability entrepreneurship, enabling personalised and action-oriented approaches to learning.

    PRIORITIES

    Project SDG NAVIGATOR addresses the following priorities:

    1. “Environment and fight against climate change” by creating conditions to build knowledge, skills, and attitudes targeting sustainable development and social and ecological-entrepreneurship. It will contribute to developing a culture of sustainability, creating a background that enables individuals and the organisations they integrate to define and implement suitable action plans to act on sustainable development education and sustainability-driven entrepreneurship, pervading the different life roles.
    2. “Adapting vocational education and training to labour market needs”, by developing learning resources to reinforce individuals’ competences, enabling them to better address labour market needs, as well as those of glocal communities, proactively and with a sustainable entrepreneurial mindset. The involvement of associated partners and other local stakeholders in the diverse project phases will also boost stronger cooperation between educational institutions and business and local communities, contributing to upskilling educators and community leaders in competences that have the required impacts in how sustainability can be taught and integrated into targeted VET, organisations, and community-based actions.
    3. “Increasing attractiveness of VET” by developing and providing highly relevant future-oriented content (focused on both sustainability entrepreneurial competences and sustainability project-related processes and strategies), cutting-edge, digital, open educational resources (including diverse interactive learning resources available on an online hub), and innovative learnercentred and action-oriented learning methodologies (inspired by storytelling, design thinking, and play-based methods), proved to be efficient in education for sustainable development.

    TARGET GROUP

    The project’s direct target groups are:

    1. VET learners, including all individuals interested in sustainability-related topics,
    2. VET providers, and
    3. business entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.

    The project will additionally target other educators, consultants, and relevant stakeholders leading sustainable development initiatives at the local and national level in the participant countries, especially those trying to raise individuals’ participation and accountability in this collective call-out.

    ABOUT THE PROJECT

    The SDG NAVIGATOR Digital Hub and Toolbox (SNDH) integrates the Sustainability Changemakers Competences Dictionary (SCCD) and the Sustainability NAVIGATOR Learning Path (SNLP), to offer an interactive and personalised exploration of the available resources. It also has a thematic toolbox designed to support educators and consultants
    in facilitating more dynamic and customised consultancy-training processes on sustainability-driven entrepreneurship,
    as well as individuals expanding on competences and processes that are critical for them or for the challenges and opportunities they are dealing with.

    The SNDH toolbox contains interactive exercises, that are organised and displayed by the process stages defined in
    the Sustainability NAVIGATOR Learning Path (SNLP) and the competences defined in the Sustainability Changemakers Competences Dictionary (SCCD).

    The interactive learning resources like storytelling, videos, interactive infographics, action cards, and flashcards, quizzes, etc developed within the Sustainability NAVIGATOR Learning Path (SNLP) can be used in stand-alone mode and customized to individual preferences. This set of attractive, playful, real-world-oriented activities are aimed at supporting further content exploration and application. We recommend these tools and resources as pre- and post-training assessments on the training themes.
