International AcademyDriving Change Together

International Academy Driving Change Together is an international educational platform. Our activity is inspired by Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for the e-Mobility initiative, shaped during the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Katowice (COP24) (2018).

Paris Agreement (2015) charts a new course to accelerate global climate action and pushes deep decarbonization of transport sector. Without a doubt, we can say: E-mobility is the answer for new clean transport, the best solution to achieve the climate goals and way for implementing ambitions of European Green Deal.

E-mobility learning

The new sector needs new skills. The number of electric vehicles on the streets worldwide is growing constantly.  Industry can benefit from increased demand for the production, installation, operation & maintenance of charging points, public transport systems, batteries, and other related infrastructure, resulting in the net increase in employment within construction, electricity, services and most manufacturing sectors. With the right enabling policies, e-mobility can also gradually replace the decreasing jobs in manufacturing of diesel and petrol engines with new jobs and new skills required in electric automotive manufacturing and key supply chains such as batteries. The European companies already design and produce state-of-the-art electric motors, electric powertrains, substations, and infrastructure as well as z energy management systems and chargers.

We need knowlege

The platform International Academy Driving Change Together has the aim to develop innovative methods and strategies for shared learning together with vocational schools, institutions of higher education, and companies in the electromobility. This platform will develop a guideline for the implementation of innovative learning environments in training using electro-mobility as an example and develop different prototype teaching models of cooperation between vocational training, higher education, and on-the-job training. We would like also to allow apprentices and students (vocational and practical orientation) to learn together, promoting students and teachers interchange. Through the different activities we would like to internationalize the participating education institutions in order to better prepare the trainees for the demands of an increasingly global labor market.
