First online conference online! (06-02-2021)
The Sustainable salon-project has started with a first kick off online conference in the beginning of February 2021. The Kick off was originally planned to take place in December 2020 in Schiphol-Rijk, the Netherlands.
Due to COVID-19 travel is not possible, so we have converted the physical conference into a two-day Skype conference.
The aim of the Sustainable salons project is to gather facts through an inventory of the hairdresser's competencies in 2030, the desired situation in a sustainable salon and focus on environmental aspects (core of a simple standard), competences needed to reach this situation and research on two diagnostic self-assessment tools to map the current situation on:
1. competence level and measuring the gap on profile and future competences and
2. the gap of the level towards the sustainability system on environment and sustainability in schools (salon).
The outcomes of the inventory will be discussed with experts and the results will later on serve as the input for developing the self-assessment tools, the learning material on environment in a sustainable salon and awareness material on sustainability.
A Happy New Year 2021 (31-12-2020)
2020 was an exciting year for everyone and therefore also for us at the Sustainable Salon- project. We look back on a year in which not much was possible. The different countries of the partners had different situations with regard to COVID-19. This meant that contacts with the partners became much more difficult and activities could only be organized at a distance. Hopefull 2021 will be a better year for organizing events and partner meetings.
We wish everyone a healthy and prosperous 2021. We look forward to it with great expectation and hope to be able to work with you on this interesting project.
