Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum 2014: Addressing the social implications of green growth

 

‌‌ ‌‌

Continuing the success of the Green Growth and Sustainable Development (GGSD) Forums, we are pleased to announce that the third Forum will focus on “addressing the social challenges of green growth".


The 2014 Forum will examine the distributional consequences of implementing green growth strategies and their impact on employment, skills and income.
 Green growth’s combination of strong economies and a clean environment could increase the well-being of all citizens if the right policy mix is applied.


It will bring together experts from policy making and research to examine the evidence and options in two key domains – energy and jobs – based on concrete experience of dealing with the social implications for households and workers.


The Forum will discuss both the technical and political economy aspects of the issues, to propose workable solutions that can be implemented across different levels of government.
 It will also identify areas that need further research, analysis and collaboration to close knowledge gaps.

 _______________________________________________

Who should attend and why?

The Forum is designed for those with hands-on experience of shaping policy and advising policy makers in national and local government. It provides a practical opportunity to share experiences with colleagues from similar or different areas of expertise and different parts of the world, and to learn from them.


The Forum should be seen more as a workshop than a conference
, and those attending are encouraged to participate actively, for example in the breakout sessions that will focus on priorities for future work.


Apart from experts from the OECD, EU, IEA and ILO, participants will include specialists from government departments, researchers, and representatives from employer and trade union organisations.
 Political leaders will give keynote addresses.
