Promoting green jobs for youth

Green jobs are decent jobs that contribute to preserve or restore the environment. They help reduce consumption of energy and raw materials, limit greenhouse gas emissions, minimise waste and pollution, protect and restores ecosystems; and support adaptation to climate change.

The are the response to two major challenges of our time: how to deal with climate change and environmental degradation, and how to deliver development and decent work.

Green jobs can help lift millions of workers out of poverty and promote social inclusion. Artists have partnered with the ILO to promote green economy as the key to a sustainable future.
