About us

South Africa’s vision for a low-carbon, resource-efficient and pro-employment future has been laid out in the National Development Plan 2030. The country’s Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan to overcome the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis also acknowledges the benefits of an inclusive green transition.

The virtual dialogue series “Green jobs for a better future” will explore avenues for creating employment opportunities, particularly for young people, through green jobs as an important element of a just transition and a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a series of five webinars from mid-April to mid-June 2021, different stakeholders will share their views on enabling policies, job opportunities in specific sectors, prevalent skills gaps and discuss with participants implementable actions to support young people in their aspirations to work in the green economy.
