CSR2VET | A meeting point

Open educational resources on CSR for VET | Project number: 2021-1-SE01-KA220-VET-000028142

CSR is much more than a business stuff.

CSR requires new skills as well as changes in values and behavior

It is crucial to encourage education establishments to integrate CSR, sustainable development, and responsible citizenship into relevant education curricula. CSR values ensure that students, teachers, companies, organizations, and the community will all benefit. Integrating the CSR perspective into VET is essential to enhance knowledge about the issue among future generations of employees. From this perspective, educational institutions need to collaborate with the pri­vate sector when drawing up their CSR programs. This will help to ensure that the programs meet the private sector’s actual needs and allow for individual companies’ experiences to be inclu­ded in the teaching.

CSR covers:

  • human rights,
  • labor and employment practices (such as training, diversity, gender equality, and employee health and well-being),
  • environmental issues (such as biodiversity, climate change, resource efficiency, life-cycle assessment and pollution prevention),
  • combating bribery and corruption
  • community involvement and development
  • integration of persons with disability
  • consumer interests.
