The green jobs movement is thinking about how to grow jobs by growing industries. Take a look at the report just released by Green for All: Green Collar Jobs in America's Cities (http://www.greenforall.org/resources/gcjobsamericascities.pdf). Its a tool to think strategically about green jobs in your community, about growing green jobs for the participants you work with.
Aren't you hearing a lot of buzz about green jobs? And when the buzz is in the air, do you ask yourself: What are 'green jobs'?
I've been listening to the buzz for a couple of years now and asking these questions of folks across MA. The answers are diverse: green jobs are jobs in renewable energy and energy efficiency, green jobs are pathways out of poverty, green jobs are jobs that connect to the environment and help address climate change.
