Bridging the Great Green Divide: International Learnings for Scotland, United Kingdom

The green transition is among the most formidable tasks the world faces, transforming local labour markets, as workers move into different occupations and sectors. It will create new types of jobs, result in the loss of some existing jobs, and change the skills required for many jobs. As the geography of these transitions will differ, a place-based lens will be vital for policy.

Join us to hear the latest findings from the 2023 edition of the OECD flagship publication, Job Creation and Local Economic Development, learn from international experiences, and discuss the implications for Scotland.
