WEBINAR: Skills for the Green Economy - Policy outlook and best practices


The impact of climate change on society and labour markets globally will be profound. To ensure an effective transition to a green economy, climate change mitigation policies are being implemented worldwide, setting ambitious goals that will require unique measures to be introduced by governments, national, regional and local authorities, social partners, civil society and industry.

Moving towards a greener economy will create new opportunities, clean and sustainable technologies, and investments that will require new skills and new jobs to transform climate and environmental challenges into real growth. 

A high-level discussion on the crucial role that skills investment needs to play in transitioning toward a Green Economy will be held on Wednesday 14 April, 15:00-16:15 CEST, hosted online by The Adecco Group. The speakers will include representatives from the European Commission and the European Parliament, as well as the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) and The Adecco Group.

The event will explore key insights from the White Paper Skills for the Green Economy, illustrating how investing in the right skills is an essential condition to achieving the urgently needed Green Transition, and outlining the actions that can and should be taken to mitigate negative impacts on labour markets.
