A Just Transition: Workforce Development and Jobs for A New Clean Economy

The global transition to clean energy has to occur—the only questions are whether we can get there in time to avoid the most catastrophic scenarios and how equitable the new economy will be. It’s essential that those at risk of being left behind can be brought along so they too can prosper in a new clean and green economy. Some key players in this field lay out a practical vision for how the right job training and workforce development programs can achieve that goal. Hosted by: Vien Truong, one of the country’s leading experts on building an equitable green economy. With: Sarah White, Deputy Director of Equity, Climate and Jobs at the California Workforce Development Board; Larry Williams Jr., Labor and Coal Coordinator for the Sierra Club Labor Program; Demond Drummer, Executive Director of New Consensus.
