The SUSMILE project is a 2-year ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership, that brings together 8 partners from 4 EU countries to build digital education readiness by addressing this challenge through the provision of effective and inclusive teaching tools, materials, resources and methods to ensure distance learning in the area of sustainable last mile logistics.
COVID-19 HAS HIGLIGHTED THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS PROJECT
During the COVID-19 crisis, VET (Vocational Education & Training) teachers and trainers have faced many challenges to continue teaching despite this disruptive situation. Distance learning measures have shown a lack of adapted means, training materials and tools across all VET qualifications. Particularly, the transport and logistics sector must focus on last mile delivery to make it more sustainable and mitigate the negative environmental effects related to trends such as e-commerce.
