Trainings on Green Jobs

Start and Improve your Business Training in China Women entrepreneurs in Russia
Millions of green jobs already exist in sectors such as energy efficiency, energy supply, transportation and waste management and there is evidence for the viability and potential for green jobs across the entire workforce, but only a fraction of this potential is being tapped. Additional proactive policy initiatives and public as well as private investments are needed.

ILO training courses will allow participants to contribute to the formulation and implementation of national policy for a transition to a greener, more sustainable economy. Although training is designed for a specific audience, the focus of these trainings remains on the social dimensions of relevant environmental and economic policies, including the workplace, enterprise development, incomes, poverty, and the labour market, especially employment and skills development. Trainings are usually directed to ILO constituents such as staff of Employers' Organizations and Trade Unions, and officials of Ministries of Labour. However, it is also suitable for officials from other Ministries, such as Environment, Planning or Finance, and for representatives of national and international development agencies.
