The sustainable development goals run the risk to be only present in the official discourses without an effective integration in practice. Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) are strong fields to effectively promote sustainable behaviour. A core element of RRI is the public engagement not only in stakeholder organisations, but in overall citizens. Under this perspective, responsible innovation is conceived as open processes, but oriented to specific goals. The triple, quadruple, and quintuple helix illustrates these challenges. As such it is also a cooperative learning process between multiple actors. It requires steering of the competence development from part of the project responsible and, in consequence, the definition of competences for sustainable projects and competences.
Bringing the results of two Erasmus+ projects (one on Responsible Sustainable Innovation and the other on sustainable competence for adult learners) we develop an approach to define sustainable competences in innovation processes based on citizens’ participation. The competence schemes developed by Wiek et al. (2016), Brundiers et al. (2020), the Green Competence framework (JRC from EU, 2022) and Heyse & Erpenbeck (2007) were used. The results were contrasted with focus groups of practitioners in adult learning.
The competence approach can be used for the development of a flexible framework to tailor learning innovation projects based on citizens’ engagement oriented to sustainability. To response to the big societal challenges of climate change, sustainable innovation project should integrate a component of learning promoting understanding of the complex relation between human beings and their ecological and social environment.
