The session explores what the opportunities for new green jobs will be as the world looks to decarbonise, go circular and improve resource efficiency. But new opportunities will create new tensions in supply and demand, so what are the new core competencies and skills needed in a low-carbon, resource-efficient and greener world, and how will we compete with other industries that are also looking to decarbonise? Will our sector attract the talent needed, how do we make ourselves more attractive, what courses are needed and what partners must we work with (from colleges and universities to government, industry and professional bodies) to ensure that 2030 and 2040 don’t come and go and we are still chasing the opportunities rather than realising the potential?
