#GGKPWebinar | Green jobs and a just transition

November 18, 2020 @ 5:00 am - 6:30 am

Why must green jobs be central in national recovery strategies?
What sectors are leading in green jobs creation? What are some new green job profiles?
How can governments support workers during a green transition? What are key social protections as job profiles change or shift to new green sectors?
How can businesses lead in the green jobs transition, and how can going green make a business more competitive?
On 18 November (2-3:30pm CET), join the GGKP for a discussion on how governments and business can lead a just transition to greener economies featuring country perspectives from Argentina and South Africa.

The discussion will be moderated by Moustapha Kamal Gueye, Coordinator of the Green Jobs Programme at the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The ILO Guidelines for a just transition to environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all provide a policy framework for inclusive, employment-centered green transitions for workers, enterprises and communities.

Moderated by:
This webinar is the third in a five-part #GGKPwebinar series held under the project, Green Economy Transformation in Cooperation with the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) – Synergies between low-emission pathways and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
