For the past few years, on a national level, there has been quite a bit of attention given to capitalizing on environmental sustainability as a means to advance the U.S. workforce and social systems. Regional initiatives that have embraced this notion include the Chicago Climate Action Plan (CCAP), the State Energy Sector Partnership, and Energy Impact Illinois.
This seminar is an overview of how these local initiatives were developed, the impact that they have had, thus far, on the regional workforce system, and where they’re
headed in the near future.
