Future of the Green Economy: A Path to Recovery?
Through 2020, there’s been a hope for a silver lining and a light at the end of the tunnel. As we attempt to look beyond the pandemic, the question arises, “What is the path to recovery?”
The possibility of federal action in support of the green-tech and sustainability industry sector will be one of several rapidly developing topics that will be addressed by speakers Nancy Sutley, Nancy Ander, Dr. Fynnwin Prager and other invited speakers at this LAEDC Future Forum.
The green economy has been gaining traction over the last decade as municipalities and governments worldwide have re-evaluated how they do business in respect to the environment. From the Paris (Climate) Agreement, to “Green New Deals” that have been adopted, to policy platforms, the sustainability agenda is shaping the future of local, state, national and global economies.
Now, nearing a year into this pandemic, the green economy is increasingly seen as key piece of economic recovery. We’ll take a look at how the move to a more sustainable and renewable economy and environment is impacting the opportunities of tomorrow, with specific industries, occupations and career pathways experiencing more demand. The program will also address concerns about whether it will be enough as we try to jumpstart economic development in our region.
The LAEDC is focusing on timely research to provide updated regional insights that will inform the green economy’s decisionmakers about the state of the industry and where the opportunities are; and, how recovering from the current pandemic will affect future growth.
During these unprecedented times, the future can be intimidating, but LAEDC’s Future Forum is a trusted convening to analyze the ways our sustainability industries and related job growth in the green economy may serve as the “light at the end of the tunnel” as we look ahead.
This event is free to the public.
