The Really Hempful! project aligns with the goals of the EU Green Deal by emphasizing environmentally-friendly hemp cultivation practices, which help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support a circular economy. Hemp is a versatile crop that can be used in various sectors, such as construction, textiles, and plastics, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional materials that are resource-intensive and have a high environmental impact.

The main objectives of the Really Hempful! project are:

- To strengthen the knowledge and proficiency of VET students and new farmers about hemp cultivation through the development of a comprehensive VET curriculum.

- To raise awareness of the advantages and opportunities of hemp cultivation across various sectors, emphasizing its role in sustainable agriculture and combating climate change.

- To support the creation of a specific VET training program through a permanent, user-friendly online training platform tailored to the needs of VET students and new farmers.

- To promote cooperation between VET schools and local professionals from different sectors, facilitating knowledge exchange and collaboration to support sustainable economic growth in the hemp industry.


The above-mentioned goals will be met through a concerted effort to develop a comprehensive VET curriculum, raise awareness of hemp cultivation's advantages, establish a user-friendly online training platform, and foster collaboration between VET schools and local professionals. These initiatives are strategically designed to enhance knowledge and proficiency in hemp cultivation among VET students and new farmers, while also promoting sustainable practices and supporting economic growth within the hemp industry. By implementing targeted strategies and facilitating cooperation, the Really Hempful! Project aims to effectively align with the objectives outlined in the EU Green Deal.
