A lookback to the Austrian Euroguidance Conference "Green Guidance"

The Austrian Euroguidance conference on 11 November 2021 focused on the question of what impulses Career Guidance can provide in shaping a greener and more ecological future for all. The event was linked to the objectives of the new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme, the European Green Deal and the European Skills Agenda.

"Green Guidance" gives a broader perspective to career choices by asking the simple question: "What are the implications of my career choice in terms of sustainability?", said Prof. Peter Plant in his keynote on “Sustainability, Green Guidance, and Utopia”. Peter Plant, who describes himself as a "lifelong utopian", diagnosed a paradigm shift in the role of guidance. “Green Guidance moves career-decisions centre stage, to a higher note of personal commitment, societal involvement, and meaningfulness. In relation to globalisation, and to social justice, it places guidance in a central global position: environmental issues and sustainability concerns know no boundaries.”

Euroguidance Austria wishes to thank all speakers and participants from more than 24 countries who contributed to the success of the conference.
