Supporting local renewable energy empowerment in Mozambique

What is the GreenSkills4Dev Project?

The GreenSkills4Dev project is designed to support different educational sectors in Mozambique to build their renewable energy training capacities. Through a combination of online courses, live virtual workshops, and hands-on practical training it aims to enable local people with local knowledge to develop a decentralized renewable energy infrastructure in rural regions.

As a partner we will assist institutions in:

  • Implementing a Blended Learning Master Degree together with the Eduardo Mondlane University Mozambique on Renewable Energies
  • Supporting local training institutions to set up renewable energy trainings
  • Providing Trainings tailored online and virtual workshops to the private sector (PayGo Companies, investors and decision makers)

As a participant you will take part in:

  • Online training courses
  • Tailor made live virtual courses (online workshops)
