The Porto Meeting: getting the VET sector involved in the preservation of interiors

The Revintage project had its third meeting last January in Porto, Portugal, in which the participants further outlined their efforts to partner with VET (Vocational Education and Training) institutions in order to further the preservation of post-war European interiors.

In general, we saw a lot of interest in the subject and the need to pay attention to it. At the same time, we also experienced that it is sometimes difficult to get in touch with representatives of the VET sector. This is not necessarily due to disinterest but to time and the limited possibilities that the current curriculum has in terms of supplementation with new topics. The three partners’ approaches differed as a result of the opportunities. However, this led to an interesting complementary approach that gave us more information.

The central question for the next stage of the project is: What could be the role of VET and heritage institutions and -professionals in preserving post-war interiors? Keep posted for more news.
