Publisher: 06/27/2000 21:05:02http://www.gecko.ac.uk/ 2005Notes: Description based on contents viewed : 06/27/2000 21:05:02 Mode of access : WORLD WIDE WEB ONLINE RESOURCESummary: Despite some impressive progress over the past 30 years, protecting the natural environment is still one of today's top global issues. Industrial pollution and other headline dangers have been successfully tackled in places. At the 'Earth Summit' in Rio in 1992, the international community affirmed that current patterns of economic and social development are not sustainable. Since then there have been many constructive responses in government, business and the civil society to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Decisions have to deal with conflicting opinions about environmental problems, the risks they pose to different groups in society, and the need to build trust and engage citizens in solutions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Green gold rush : how ambitious environmental policy can make Australia a leader in the race for green jobs. /

by Australian Conservation Foundation | Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Australian Conservation Foundation and 2008; Australian Council of Trade Unions 2008Description: HTML.Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: "The ACF and ACTU jointly commissioned this research to explode the myth that strong action on climate change will destroy industries and jobs. The reports states that Australia could become a leader in certain green industries, generate up to 850,000 green collar jobs by 2030 and multi-billion dollar export opportunities, but action is needed now. The report identifies six green collar industries with great potential for growth and development: renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable water systems, biomaterials, green buildings and waste and recycling. How Australian governments choose to respond to these challenges and opportunities will have a dramatic effect on the profile of Australia s future workforce." -- ACF websiteAvailability: No items available

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.
