Many of us have heard of the Green Collar Economy, but hearing about and understanding something can be two different things. What does the Green Collar Economy mean for adult learners and educators? Should more career pathways programs be looking at the 'green sector' for the middle skill jobs into which their learners are seeking to enter?
I am looking for models of successful green collar career pathways programs leading to those middle skill careers. If you are such a program, or know of one, please reach out and let me know. Even if you don't know any of these programs, I am also interested in hearing whether you're interested in the topic. I would like to see if there is interest in the subject to host a webinar and/or panel discussion in 2020 about the Green Collar Economy, and best practices used by those programs who are capitalizing on momentum for building more environmentally sustainable career pathways.
