Sustainlabour :: Green jobs and just transition: challenges and opportunities for women and youth

Green Jobs challenge

Green jobs and just transition: challenges and opportunities for women and youth. Group coordinated by Gladys Branche (SLLC SIERRA LEONE) and Llorenç Serrano (CCOO Spain).

In 2011 the employment rate was 60.3%, almost one point below pre-crisis percentage. Since then, 50 million jobs have been destroyed and youth unemployment has risen to 80% in developed economies, and two-thirds in developing economies. Now, the first global trade union movement's concern is the employment for those who have lost it, for youth, and for women who want to enter the wage labour.

The trade union movement has the responsibility to make this change desirable, and working people will benefit from it. The shift to sustainable economic activity should not only be sharing sacrifices, must be, above all, a fair distribution of opportunities. The very definition of green jobs involves the gradual change of model. The process of change will be progressive, needs ambitious, long-term stable goals, supported by public policies with the same characteristics.
