Green prosperity shared by all? Jobs and communities in the green economy
Wednesday 20 July 2011
4th Floor, 14 Buckingham St
London, WC2N 6DF
IPPR will be publishing findings from a recent learning exchange to California, US, which will highlight both challenges and opportunities on job creation and job quality in the green economy, offering important lessons for the UK.
As the government prepares to publish its Roadmap to a Green Economy, a panel of speakers from the worlds of business, environment and politics will debate the following questions:
- What are the challenges for government and employers in ensuring that policies for green growth provide good social and economic as well as environmental benefits?
- What alternatives are there to prevent the green economy perpetuating existing inequalities in the labour market?
How can government, business, environmental and community interest groups come together to ensure that communities can benefit from local employment opportunities?
