Green Skills: Pillars of the emerging green economy in the Caribbean

April 28, 2024 09:00 - 10:00 Macleod 1&2View map

Join us for the panel discussion “Green Skills: Pillars of the Emerging Green Economy,” where our panelists will explore the vital role of green skills in driving sustainability and innovation in preparing for the rapidly evolving green economy.

The transition to a just and green economy will takes decades, but it is occurring now, and it will affect all sectors of the global economy, not just the obvious sectors such as renewable energy. Individuals and economies not prepared for the change will certainly be left behind.

Post-secondary and industry representatives will draw on insights and diverse perspectives from the Caribbean, Canada, and beyond. Panelists will offer best practices for individuals, businesses, and policymakers striving to identify green skills – and seeking to leverage these green skills to prepare us all for a changing workplace.

The discussion will cover topics such as identifying key green skills, redesigning education and training programs, leveraging public-private partnerships, adapting hiring practices, and overcoming challenges in integrating green skills into existing industries.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and contribute your own thoughts to this important discussion on the advancement of the green economy.
