Skills Rising - skills for sustainability
Skills Rising will facilitate the transfer of practical skills for sustainability by promoting re-skilling as the positive, personal response to tougher times, and providing easy access to skills provision. The exciting, yet straightforward website will list existing courses and informal learning opportunities, and inspire people to create new ones through showcasing practical sustainability at its best. By being honest about the size of the challenges whilst being clearly practical, the website will communicate a sense of constructive urgency.
We will feature intensely practical and seasonal advice on what you can do, examples of people already doing it for themselves, and provide clear pathways of how to get the key skills you are lacking. Our promotional strategy and cutting edge website design will bring people to the site, and from there to the people who can directly assist them to raise their skill level and their confidence. Rather that reinvent the wheel, this project is designed to celebrate and support the many positive things that people are already doing, and provide impetus to the movement.
