Gen green : what young Australian tradespeople think of green skills /

by Dusseldorp Skills Forum.

Publisher: Edgecliff, N.S.W. Dusseldorp Skills Forum 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The Gen Green project is an online survey targeting 2006 & 2008 WorldSkills Australia National competitors across a range of trades and skill areas. This survey explores the green skills in the young workforce to meet the challenges of a sustainable future. From previous research, “Growing the Green Collar Economy”, we know the green collar economy is a huge growth opportunity and we saw the need to find out from young skilled trades people what they think and how they are engaged with skills for sustainability. ; In July 2008, Dusseldorp Skills Forum, in partnership with WorldSkills Australia, pioneered the inaugural Green Team project at the WorldSkills Australia National Skills competition delivering an Initial Environmental review, and an ecological and carbon footprint report, an environmental management plan (EMP) and template and the Green Award. ; At this time experienced representatives from training, education and industry, who design and judge the projects that the young tradespeople undertake at the National competitions, were encouraged to introduce, or to emphasise existing, sustainable skills & practices. The Gen Green Survey also seeks to gain feedback from these past competitors on how green they think the WorldSkills competitions should be and which areas to particularly focus on.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Policy brief No. 15.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes Bibliography pp 26 - 29 July 2010Summary: Despite a great deal of enthusiasm about green jobs, there has been surprisingly little interest in what the concept actually means. Given that the precise definition of a green job will ultimately determine both the environmental effectiveness of the growing body of green-collar workers and the value received in return for significant public investment, the absence of a cogent definition is a cause for concernAvailability: (1)

Green jobs and skills : second report of session 2008-09 : report, together with formal minutes, oral and written evidence /

by Great Britain. Parliament. House of Commons. The nvironmental Audit Committee.

Publisher: London, U.K. The Stationery Office Limited 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 8 December 2009 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Employment opportunities in low-carbon industries are significant. To take advantage of these in the face of global competition the UK Government must move quickly to identify those sectors in which the UK can take a lead. It must develop a strategy that encourages investment both by reducing barriers to growth and by ensuring a stable demand for lowcarbon products and services. The Low Carbon Industrial Strategy goes some way to achieving these two aims. It is actively targeting the renewable energy sector but does not effectively address a transition across the whole economy. There has been discussion and some activity, but the transition is not yet happening. Industry leaders and investors must be reassured that the Government is committed to long-term support for low-carbon industries. Businesses must be encouraged to take the low-carbon route to growth and a strong carbon price is best way to do this.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Green jobs/green homes : New York : expanding home energy efficiency and creating good jobs in a clean energy economy /

by Gelman, Emmaia (ed.) | Center for American Progress.

Publisher: Washington, DC Center for American Progress 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2009 Bibliography : p. 84-87Summary: The program presented in this paper, Green Jobs/Green Homes NY, fills in what we have lacked: a large-scale plan to make retrofits affordable to New Yorkers who don't have access to sufficient capital. But the imperative for using residential retrofits to give all New Yorkers a chance to save on energy costs goes beyond funding. Energy efficiency represents a major capital undertaking, but must also engage communities to participate in planning and reaping the benefits of this publicly led investment in jobs, affordable housing, and environmental stewardship. Green Jobs/Green Homes NY is a comprehensive approach that connects those dots. It provides the framework for ensuring mass retrofits are implemented through a community lens, adding value to ongoing local work toward economic and environmental equity. Building on and linking unions' and community groups' existing job training and shaping the expanding retrofit industry with decent wages and benefits?can provide direct economic gain to wholecommunities (not just owners or occupants of retrofitted housing) by bringing many thousands of much-needed, good-paying jobs and career paths to local residents.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
