Clean Energy Economy and Workforce Preparation: IPEC Solution Summits

Empowering People Initiative (EPI) hosted a series of four virtual convenings under the newly launched project entitled Integrated Policymaking and Empowering Communications for the Clean Energy Economy and Workforce (IPEC). The series is making it easier for governments to develop more holistic and integrated workforce and green economy policies and programs, and overcome fragmented approaches to workforce formation between the relevant ministries. Participants from national governmental offices for energy, education, employment and labor, industry, economic development, and social affairs and well-being are invited. The project is open to all countries. Allied stakeholders from industry, labor, nonprofits, education and local governments are also invite to help accelerate solutions implementation. Join over 100 countries that have already signed up.
