Stimulate demand for sustainable energy skills with circularity as a driver and multifunctional green use of roofs, façades and interior elements as focus.

Objective

The overall aim of BUS-GoCircular is to address and overcome the challenges of the stimulation of demand for green energy skilled workforce, along with hands-on capacity building to increase the number of skilled workforce across the value chain. BUS-GoCircular will achieve this objective by developing and implementing a circular construction skills qualification framework with a focus on multifunctional green roofs, façades and interior elements. In addition, the project is strengthened by application of successful train-the-trainer methods and techniques for upskilling both demand and supply sides of the value chain involved. For stimulation of demand for sustainable energy skills, specific activities concerning companies, real estate, home owners and local authorities will be developed, including support towards legislative changes through circular green procurement and recognition of skills. Implementation will be carried out at country-specific and regional levels, based on a blend of measures to stimulate demand complemented with hands-on and practical upskilling of local and regional training capacity and workforce. In this way, broad engagement of SMEs will be ensured.

BUS-GoCircular is formed by a coalition of former BUILD UP Skills and Construction Skills projects strengthened by partners understanding the demand side. The partners believe that by working together, the national implementation plans and developed means will improve and become more attractive and effective. BUS-GoCircular is strengthened by several EU umbrella organisations and a diverse group of supporters to underpin the support base, to co-create when tackling the challenges and to communicate and disseminate successes and lessons learned.
