Project Summary
Lifelong learning is an inseparable part of daily life. Because the continuous structural changes required by the digital age affect all areas of life, individuals, societies and economies. Updating the skills and competences is possible through adult education in lifelong learning approach. The quality and quantity of the human resources required by the economic sectors are constantly being changed. That is why gaining new skills becomes very important in an ever-changing world. Therefore, our project is built on the development of adult skills in accordance with the characteristics of the digital age. The general aim of the project is to contribute to the smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of green and competitive economy through the use of geothermal energy in agriculture, food industry and animal husbandry. The target group of our project are the trainers in adult education regarding the use of geothermal energy and the low skilled adults who can be employed in these areas.

Project Outputs
1- Course modules (2 training programs) for adult education centers in Europe.
