The transition to a green economy will offer opportunities to create new jobs in many sectors but will also transform jobs in those sectors most affected by the transition. Both new and transformed jobs will require workers with new skills. This training session aims to analyse the impact of a green economy on skills development and to draft action plans encouraging companies and public authorities to invest in skills development in the sectors concerned. The mining, transport and the metallurgical industry will be used as paradigmatic sectors.
