What is the EU doing to foster green skills? Where are we in terms of funding to generate green jobs? Ask our experts via Twitter on 3rd June at 11:00-12:00 with the hashtag #EU4GreenSkills!

The Twitter chat is set up in the framework of the Green Week organised by DG Environment. It will involve experts from our DG but also from REGIO, MARE, ECFIN, GROW and CEDEFOP. The transition to a resource efficient, low carbon economy offers the opportunity to create new green jobs. One of the main characteristics of green economy is to be a resource-efficient economy. An economy that is more efficient will become more competitive and create jobs. 

Moving to a greener economy is best seen not only in environmental terms, but also as a special case of economic structural change. This greening the economy will create new occupations and there will be a need for new

  • skills profiles
  • qualifications
  • training frameworks.

Many existing occupations and industries will experience greening changes to tasks within their jobs, and this will require adjustments to the current training and qualification frameworks for these occupations.
