New area of Sustainability (work in progress)

The Basque Country believes in sustainable human growth where society, the environment, culture and economy are interconnected, and not separate. Sustainability is a paradigm to think about a future where environmental, social and economic considerations are balanced in the search for better quality of life.

Vocational Training plays a crucial role in this sustainable human development. It will be executed under a production model based on the efficient use of existing resources, broadly and comprehensively, as support for a sustainable economy that we have the obligation to build, for our own benefit and for the benefit of future generations.
