Green Jobs BC Forum
At the forum, nearly 100 people, from the labour and environmental movements, academics, government, and business leaders, gathered together to talk about the details of retrofits and to imagine a GreenJobs Plan for BC. It’s been great to read the enthusiastic and constructive feedback that they provided. Here’s a sample:
“I Liked hearing from the experts who are doing great projects.”
“Wanted a bit more on the urgency of climate change we face. More on political action plan.”
“Need concrete discussion on policy.”
Fortunately, there were policy-people in each room taking notes. These notes will go to our Policy Working Group, a wise collection of labour and e-ngo leaders who are putting together a GreenJobs Policy Plan, which will be ready in the lead up to BC’s next provincial election. You will have an opportunity to help shape this at the conference.
And a request: If you have suggestions of workshops and speakers for the conference, we’d love to hear them. If you have suggestions of people who should be in the room that weekend, we’d love for you to forward the info along, or have them join our mailing list.
