Within the framework of the project “Encouraging children and youth in North Macedonia to become drivers of change to reduce the vulnerability of communities to climate change”, implemented by UNICEF, in partnership with the project “Education for employment in North Macedonia – E4E@mk”, “Panel discussion and presentation of key findings from the analysis of the situation with green skills in the Republic of North Macedonia” was held.
At the event were presented the key findings from the “Analysis of the situation with green skills in the Republic of North Macedonia”, prepared by Prof. Dr. Pece Nedanovski and Prof. Dr. Natasha Daniloska. Aleksandar Paunoski, MSc, a consultant employed by the Chamber’s member company, Colenco Ltd., participated the panel discussion as a representative of the Economic Chamber of North Macedonia. The focus of the research is on the analysis of strategies in the field of environmental protection, sustainable development, as well as other strategies related to these issues. A review was also made of strategies and programs related to economic development, especially the issue of energy efficiency, labor force and employment in North Macedonia.
During the panel discussion, our colleague explained the necessity of staff who will possess green skills and be ready to face the development of new technologies, taking into account the goals of energy transition, green energy and circular economy. In absence of such a profile of engineers, he explained Colenco’s strategy for engaging young engineers in our company even during the educational process and with constant upgrading and additional qualification, obtaining professional staff ready to be involved in the project management process. Rapid changes and technological progress in the field of renewable energy sources present a special challenge for existing employees, and one of the methods we apply is the concept of lifelong learning.
