Learning for Life on Earth
“Higher environmental standards will kill jobs.” “Going green just adds costs for no benefit.” “You can’t go green if you’re in the red.”
These statements reflect very real worries for many companies, and for the government bodies working with them on environmental issues. Surprisingly, however, the evidence points the other way, with green jobs playing a growing role in creating much-needed jobs. In fact they are already a big and rapidly-growing sector of the economy, delivering an all-round better quality of life.
Based on my book How to Change the World: a practical guide to successful environmental training, this topic is ideal for businesses and business bodies delivering training; for government agencies seeing training as a solution to environment issues; and for technical, vocational and tertiary educators.
Firms operating in a high-compliance environment and organizations lending to or insuring them and investing in them will particularly benefit.
Every job will become a green job as we transition to a carbon-neutral, resource-efficient economy – so your audience needs to learn:
- how environmental training creates green jobs – decent jobs that grow skills and profits while improving human wellbeing and the environment
- how to set up effective long-standing and acclaimed environmental training programs using my proven success framework
- how to measure the outcomes of your environmental training in terms of your business objectives and the social, environmental and economic goals of our government and governments all round the world.
