Call for Pitches!

14 February 2017, Geneva, Switzerland – The Second Ministerial Conference of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), co-hosted by the Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) of Germany, will organize an innovation session to highlight the importance of education and training for an inclusive green economy on 27 - 28 March 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The transition to a green economy future will substantially transform employment opportunities by creating new and changing current jobs. However, societies are already facing the challenge of matching the supply of skills in the workforce with changing demands from the private and public sectors.
