World Bank – UNEP Joint Webinar: Connecting Sustainable Energy Businesses with Education

Mountains and trees

This event will help employers and educators connect to prepare the workforce for the green economy. The clean energy transition is creating new job opportunities around the world. With the rapid expansion of renewables and energy efficiency, along with technology disruptions, the needed skill sets of tomorrow’s workforce are going to be significantly different. How can the private sector connect with educational and training institutions to prepare the workforce for clean energy and the green economy?

The intended audience for this webinar is businesses and organizations in the green economy and clean energy sectors, higher education institutions, and workforce developers. This webinar will provide two opportunities: for private sector employers to share what businesses need in their new hires; and for employers and educators to streamline communications about curricula and recruitment. The event will also discuss the policies, processes, and incentive mechanisms (within the private sector, education, and the labor market) required to support the development of the green workforce.
