Green Jobs and Workforce Development
As we transition to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy, the need for skilled workers in the green sector is growing rapidly. Green jobs are those that promote sustainability and reduce negative impacts on the environment, while also providing economic benefits to individuals and communities. They range from renewable energy installation and maintenance to sustainable building construction and sustainable agriculture.
In this session, we will explore ways to promote and expand green job opportunities, develop workforce training programs, and create pathways for underrepresented groups to access these jobs. By the end of this session, we hope to have generated a range of innovative ideas that can help to build a more sustainable and equitable workforce, while also contributing to a healthier planet.
