The transition to a low-carbon, resource efficient and green economy can only be made by developing the right skills, knowledge, and competencies. Such skills can be defined as “the knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society”. In countries that rely on energy- and emissions-intensive activities, the transition towards a green economy might induce severe adjustment costs, both economically and socially.
