Skills for green jobs - technical validation workshop

Workshop outcomes

Cedefop in cooperation with the ILO organised a technical validation workshop on ‘Skills for green jobs’, which took place on 17 and 18 May 2010 in Geneva, Switzerland.

In 2009 Cedefop and the ILO launched a joint project on skills for green jobs, looking in particular at new and changing occupations and skills and at the identification of retraining needs linked to ‘green restructuring’ on the labour market. The primary focus was on examples of good practice in supplementing national policies designed for greening economies with skill needs identification and effective skills response strategies. Cedefop carried out country studies in six EU Member States: Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Spain, France and the UK; the ILO conducted studies in the following 15 countries: Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mali, the Philippines, South Africa, Republic of Korea, Thailand, Uganda and the United States. All studies were based on the same research methodology and used the same criteria to select case studies, thus ensuring comparability.

The purpose of the workshop was to validate the findings of the Global synthesis report covering all 21 countries and the European synthesis report.

In particular:

  • to identify environmental challenges and effective skills response strategies;
  • to discuss changes on the labour market linked to greening the economy and related retraining needs;
  • to highlight current and future occupational changes and skills gaps and their implications for vocational training;
  • to make policy recommendations and propose further steps.
