Green Jobs for Youth

Resource: Green Jobs for Youth

This initiative, by UNEP and USPESD’s is intended to provide global guidance for education for green jobs. To provide better career opportunities for young people, while also building a greener economy, it is necessary to build strong environmental sustainability skills via education. The initiative consists of a duality of efforts to engage youth by having relevant ministries reach out to them, as well as teaching young people how to to create conversation with their government officials. In so doing, pathways will be further created between SDG practitioners, employers in the green economy and education institutions.
