The aim of the the Dusseldorp Skills Forum (DSF) Gen Green research series is to build an indicative understanding of changes in apprentices' and trainee\' personal experiences of learning and applying sustainability related skills over time. It is hoped this longitudinal research will provide employers, VET practitioners, VET & sustainability researchers and policy makers with a series of point in time youth perspectives on the impact of delivering skills for sustainability in Australia.
