Green Transition Leap - Background

The initiation of Green Transition Leap was started in the autumn of 2020 via the Government's collaboration program for Business Climate Change through a thought paper written by IF Metall and the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and through discussions between RISE, Fossil Free Sweden, Teknikföretagen, Företagarna, Tillväxtverket and Vinnova. 

The thought paper was then refined in the working group Knowledge and Competence, to a proposal for a Green Transition Leap - with a focus on learning and the ability to cope with climate change - via the South Swedish Chamber of Commerce and RISE and was given high priority by the collaboration program members. A feasibility study was initiated by Vinnova in December 2020.

The Green Transition Leap includes a large number of actors who, through commitment and wisdom, have contributed to the Green Transition Leap taking the form it now has. The most prominent of these in addition to the already mentioned organizations have been: the Climate Policy Council, Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education, KOMET, the Delegation for Circular Economy, Viable Cities, RE:Source, IUC, IVL, SISP, Energikontoren, IKEA, Northvolt, Skellefteå Municipality, Stockholm Region, Västra Götaland Region, TEKO.

The Green Transition Leap has the potential to become a common national forum for issues concerning dimensions towards sustainability and the green transition. Linked to the collaboration program Competence Supply and Lifelong Learning's work to develop a common agenda for issues related to competence supply and lifelong learning at a national level, the Green Transition Leap can be a piece of the puzzle in a more effective collaboration around meeting the important societal challenges of our time. Among other things, there are opportunities here to collaborate in the work of utilizing the possibilities of digitalisation in order to be able to anticipate, make visible and guide issues that are connected to the green transition. The Green Transition Leap also contains elements that can be used in the work of identifying the need for input in the future within the Green Transition Leap need for competence supply.
