GAIN Webinar Series

GAIN Webinars offer an opportunity to collaborate and share resources by providing a platform where members can work internally and externally on GAIN’s mission-related topics. This Webinar Series will host six webinars per year, therefore one every two months.

GAIN Webinar Series aims to become an active and interactive platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination. In this context while most of the webinar topics will be proposed and organised by the ILO Green Jobs Programme, GAIN is also offering the opportunity to its members to facilitate and lead the sessions.

ILO Green Jobs will organize its next webinars with a focus on the following areas:

(i) Green jobs assessments applying the GAIN standardised methodology or other similar methodological approaches – Date: 24 July 2018
(ii) Ongoing GAIN activities such as trainings – Date: September 2018 (tbc)

Webinars facilitated by GAIN members would potentially cover the following themes:

(i) Green jobs country assessments and research made by GAIN members
(ii) Discussions around the methodologies used for assessing social and employment outcomes of green policies, their limitations and the potential for improvement
(iii) The link between green policies and their social and employment outcomes.

About the Fuelling Europe’s Future (2018) report:

This report, initially developed in 2013 and updated in 2018, was carried out by Cambridge Econometrics in collaboration with Element Energy and aims at assessing the economic impact of decarbonising passenger cars across Europe. As such, the report uses the cutting-edge E3ME macro-economic model to consider the economic impact of a series of forward looking scenarios that encompass alternative visions of Europe’s future vehicle fleet.
