Presentation Transcript

The Greek partnership “Action for Tomorrow” proposes the study and the application of practices whose aim is achieving permanent and effective employability.

But, in which way could we achieve this result?

One solution is to create new types of professions by the aid of which the employees will be able to obtain long-term employment with flexible timetables. The target groups are persons from social groups such as women, the long-term unemployed, the unemployed who are more than 45 years old, persons with limited technical skills e.t.c. These persons will receive training in new technologies and in the domain of new production methods.

The new types of jobs refer to the environment in its larger sense. They are not only the professions, which are closely related to nature, but, among them, there exist also professions related to the construction sector and the conservation of the national heritage.

Before we present the Greek action, we must present the terminology that we will use in order to describe the proposed new types of jobs and employability.

We say that we aim at ” sustainable development “. In Greek there is the term «αειφόροςανάπτυξη». The word «αειφόρος» contains the adverb «αεί» whose meaning is “always” like in the expression «νυνκαιαεί» that means “for ever and ever”. The second constituent of the word «αειφορία» is «-φορία» and it derives from the French expression “rapport soutenu”. In forestry, there is the Greek word «αειφορία» which is a principle according to which the same amounts of forest goods are produced annually or periodically.

In the same way, the expression «αειφόροςαπασχολησιμότητα» (“sustainable development”) is the kind of employability that we aim at. In the work sector, the “viable employability” is the kind of continuously developed employability.

Finally, we mention the term «viable professions» («πράσιναεπαγγέλματα») which are the new types of professions envisaged.

central problem that the project is called upon to face

The contemporary term of “Sustainable Development” includes 3 parameters: the social, economic and environmental ones. The social parameter is directly connected with development, employability expansion and its safeguarding. The Lisbon Conference also recognizes the importance of Sustainable Employability as a central aim of the Social Aspect of Economic Viability.

Taking this under account, the Developmental Partnership “Action for Tomorrow” aims at the organization of productivity through the development of a new category of professions: the “sustainable professions”. These professions address a wide range of employees (women, unemployed, low-qualified adults, sensitive social groups). Following the appropriate vocational training, education and adjustment to new technology standards, these groups will be able to ensure their employability as well as some flexibility in their timetables and the organization of their productive activities. Therefore, the “sustainable professions” place great emphasis to voluntarism and working for the social good.

There are not only the employees that take advantage of the usefulness of the sustainable professions but also the enterprises, which thus achieve viable growth.

Project Objectives

  • The initiative “Action for Tomorrow” will offer a valuable experience as it concerns both the educational training and the application of flexible and innovative schemata of work organization in the domain of the sustainable professions.

It will promote the adaptability of the enterprises and the employees to the economic changes and the use of new technologies and innovative applications. The project includes the creation of an Active Observatory for the support of enterprises within the field of the sustainable professions. This will codify the know-how that will come about as a result of the individual actions, the information and the structured knowledge with the aim of constantly supporting the procedure of enterprise adjustment and the undertaking of initiatives

contribution of the greek dp action for tomorrow to the transnational cooperation brat

The main objective of Action for Tomorrow is the valorization of the workers’ acquired competences through a transfer of knowledge to younger employees (cross-generation transfer of knowledge) in similar or different working environments during their career.

Specifically, Action for Tomorrow will contribute to:

  • The development of a system of certification of the acquired professional experience in enterprises. This system will be based on European standards
  • The sensitization of enterprises relating to the valorization of the know-how of more experienced employees
  • The development of a model of sustainable employability within enterprises
  • The analysis of the procedure of continuous vocational training of the employees, their trainers and all those who can transfer professional know-how within enterprises
contribution of the greek dp action for tomorrow to the transnational cooperation ping

The transnational cooperation PING consist of Development Partnerships among Italy “OLTREPO PAVESE: UN TERITORIO COME RISORSA, UN OPPORTUNITA PERLE PERSONE”, Holland “TICKET TO THE FUTURE” and Greece “ACTION FOR TOMORROW”.

The common interest of the DPs is the wish to start a comparison of various social and economic practices, study the conditions that aid or prevent the entrance in the labor market and the maintenance of working conditions. The three DPs desire to develop new ways of action and dissemination of methods and tools of life long learning (continuous training). In this way they will help professionals gain an additional value.
