Wales Climate Week – rethinking green jobs and skills

UNISON Cymru Wales – Area Learning Development Organiser Richard Speight

Supporting workers in health, care, schools and local authorities to be key players in the fight against climate change will be the focus of a UNISON led session for Wales Climate Week 2023.

Area organiser Richard Speight (pictured above) will be speaking about rethinking green jobs and skills as part of a virtual conference at 5.15pm on Wednesday December 6.

The session will focus on skills needed for low carbon green jobs.

It will provide a re-framing of the value of health, care, education and other public service work as key to tackling the ecological crises we face.

It explores our members’ attitudes towards and understanding of a just transition based on UNISON and Leeds University research.

The talk argues for the important role union-led upskilling and green reps have to play in social partnerships needed for the fair decarbonisation of the foundational economy that sits at the heart of every Welsh community – our vital public services.
