[Project number: 2020-1-CY01-KA202-065983] Executive Summary in English Given that climate change is one of the most pressing challenges that global society is facing today, actions can and must be taken to reduce its negative effects on economic development, social progress and environmental sustainability. Companies, and especially the small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), have a critical role to play in this climate change challenge, leading the way towards a healthy and more sustainable future by putting a lot of effort to reduce their GHG emissions and waste production, use energy efficiently and apply more green practices, that can actually save money and achieve economic growth. However, companies, and particularly SMEs, lack the skills or competencies to set appropriate targets and act in the right direction for responding to climate change. More training is needed for them to turn green through reducing emissions and waste production, adopting CSR strategies and green policies, fostering innovation and green technology applications, or focusing on their staff training to use energy efficiently. They also need to receive proper guidance that will contribute to setting robust and credible targets in line with the current climate change expectations. Towards this direction, trainers and VET providers can employ the GoGreen simulation-based training which can be proved very effective for the development of the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies of entrepreneurs related to the adoption and application of green practices, as well as enhance the cultivation of their attitudes towards the necessity of green transition. The overall objective of the IO2 training package of GoGreen is to equip VET providers and trainers with a ready to be used training material and guidelines, so as to be able to successfully implement simulationbased training activities addressing people from private entities and entrepreneurs to require knowledge, skills and competences so as to better understand the impacts of climate change and how to apply effective measures that mitigate those impacts in their businesses. Scope of the Handbook This handbook constitutes a tutor manual enclosing content of four (4) different climate change scenarios. It introduces all necessary documents and material for the successful implementation of the simulation training, such as the description of the scenarios, and the annexes, as well as the tools for the evaluation of the simulation training. For each simulation scenario it presents: The handbook entails also a section about the “Facilitation of the Role-playing Simulation Training”.
