UNESCO and Audi México – International Forum – Dual Education and Corporate Responsibility
In May this year, Delaney Nugent as a representative of Sustainable Skills was invited to participate in and present at the UNESCO Office in Mexico and Audi México, International Forum for Dual Education and Corporate Responsibility – Public-Private alliances for Social Mobility.
This international event took place from the 30th of May to the 1st of June 2018 in the Audi plant in San José Chiapa and the city of Puebla. The forum was an initiative organized between the UNESCO Office in Mexico and the new plant of Audi México in close collaboration with the Government of the State of Puebla, Mexico, with the forum inviting global experts and advisors in education and training to contribute to policy development in this field.
The Forum had a focus on Dual Education, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), including entrepreneurship and sustainability themes. Government and industry alike recognize the growing significance of the conservation and sustainable use of resources as well as social equity responsibilities associated with business development, presenting the challenge of ensuring vocational education and training are responsive to these needs.
Australia has proven success in Vocational Education and Training, through the development and delivery of policy and systems that address sustainability in economic, environmental and social terms.
Given Delaney’s experience and expertise in this field, she was invited to present and participate in the panel focusing on “Dual Education and Inclusion”, providing an Australian perspective on an international model.
