Project Details

Layman's description

The aim of this project is to feed into and inform a growing evidence base that will help:

1) build a better understanding of future job and skills needs to support Scotland’s transition to net zero,

2) drive awareness and action to support reskilling and upskilling,

3) support a green labour market recovery from COVID-19, and

4) highlight potential issues, where possible, that are likely to impede a 'just' transition.
