Green Jobs: Transitioning to a Net-Zero Economy
Created: 17/08/2021, Updated: 19/08/2021
When: 10:30 - 11:30am, Thursday 16 September 2021 Where: Online via Zoom This event is being organised by Social Enterprise Network Scotland
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
The Climate Emergency Skills Action Plan (2020-2025) (CESAP) has been developed in direct response to the Scottish Government's declaration of a Climate Emergency and increased legislative targets to meet net-zero emissions by 2045.
CESAP sets out a clear direction for the reorientation of skills systems and signals the role that businesses, communities and individuals will play in supporting a just transition to net-zero.
The magnitude of change required to achieve net zero demands a significant increase in ‘green’ skills and education – transitioning to a low-carbon, greener economy implies the creation of new jobs in environmentally friendly and sustainable production.
The key to success will be to ensure that everyone has access to, and benefits from opportunities.
