Workforce development programs are gearing up to prepare men and women from low-income communities for jobs and careers in the green economy. The training and preparation for these jobs and careers are seen as a ‘green pathway out of poverty’ strategy, aiming to leverage green economy opportunities as a sustainable solution for moving individuals from dependency to self-sufficiency. This presentation will focus on the role that green job training can play in preparing low-income youth and adults for the green economy both as workers and activists who come from the communities most impacted by environmental problems and injustices.
