Presented at the CCCAOE Fall 2011 Conference, this presentation incorporates data from solar and water studies. Also explored were results of a year-long examination of “green jobs” conducted in partnership with the EDD’s Labor Market Information Division (LMID), which focused on identifying the impact of “green” in creating new tasks, skills, and knowledge areas for today’s workforce. Economic & Workforce Development assistance was provided through the California Community Colleges and the presentation works to inform community colleges and the workforce community. It covers the industries that are driving growth in “green” employment and what “green” skills and knowledge employers are looking for. It provides a summary on where community colleges should invest resources and can be seen as an example of what regions can do to engage educational and employer institutions.
