The WS first half was logically ended up with a group discussion. All the participants showed key interest and anxiety towards Ukraine’s industry chances in becoming green. Among basic challenges the participants pointed out the following:

  • the industrial companies start showing bigger interest towards RECP thus the need in RECP experts becomes obvious and called-for;
  • most companies that are eager to start modernization process face the problem of no experience to be shared and lack of experts to help make this modernization run efficient;
  • preventing pollution at company level is the spot where RECP experts can provide support and help and that might become a significant input into state environmental policy realization.

The perspectives for RECP specialists to get a RECP-expert position at the industrial enterprises were also discussed at the WS. And these were:

  • the key industries show interest in RECP principles implementation and demand professionals (experts) to deal with it;
  • national companies with foreign investments are keen on meeting international environmental standards, so they draw much attention to make manufacturing processes sound environmentally friendly, and this is the reason to believe they might be very much interested in hiring RECP experts;
  • the state-of-the-art demand in RECP experts within university teaching staff is estimated as many as 1000 people.

The WS participants summarized the general opinion and belief that RECP course integration into the curriculum is realistic but complicated driven some obstacles, like: special (theme-related) terms variations; lack of qualified teachers capable to deliver the material (from the environmental and technical peculiarities viewpoint) as well as pertaining some practical skills; a gap between business requests to get a RECP expert and the availability of these high-skilled experts, etc.

The WS participants produced the collective keynote that workshops like this, to say nothing of other theme-related educational events, do contribute to gradual overcoming the obstacles in RECP promoting, thus pushing Ukraine forward to sustainable development.
