University-private sector Cooperation

Explanations

GREENCAP is focusing on promoting the green education and multidisciplinary green researches by establishing a strong university/enterprise cooperation (within incorporation of ministries, NGOs and civil society). Moreover to develop successful professional careers in the green business sector, besides good academic results, university graduates must need good skills, such as communication skills, team-working abilities, leadership skills, creativity, problem-solving skills, negotiation and decision-making skills, independent learning skills, and flexibility. Closer cooperation between universities and enterprises can help the students to develop these skills. These objective will be reach through 3 acitivities.

Professional Committee

Professional committee is composed of consortium partners and external stakeholders (company, NGOs, ministry…).. The committee is expected to discuss action plan to promote research-oriented business, propose relevant subjects of Master and PhD dissertations, etc This committee will aim to provide recommendations to the PMB in order to strengthen the links between HEI’s and the wider economic society in the field of green business.

Survey on green jobs

Although green business is a worldwide concept, still its development should be country specific. In order to better adjust the needs of the partners with respect to green growth/business opportunity in Cambodia, a report will be conducted in order to highlight the green skills required for the next 3 to 5 years on Cambodia.

Similarly, education is a key issue to move to green growth. Although awareness is now well developed about climate change impacts, etc., still knowledge of students on green jobs opportunities may be insufficient.

These reports will be conducted by a team made from Cambodia and EU teachers, researchers or experts, together with EU student (internships) and Cambodian students.

Green Conference

The implementation of Green conference, in which we expect the discussion to raise practical and potentially innovative solutions who will feedback the HEIs curriculum and research.

Develop green job opportunity

Explanations

At a Meso-level, the project develop green job market matching opportunity. HEIs are responsible to sustain links between the world of work and students. They must provide sufficient workforce skills for the student and connection to the employment network. They will also develop career support centre and/or organize (or participate in) a job fair for their students, as well as develop their Alumni. These activities will benefit from the outcomes of the macro and micro level

Green debate Competition

Youth are the future leaders, so, it is very important to raise their awareness and interests in green growth and to ensure their active participation in the greening (sustainable development) process.
