ippr: Green Jobs Summit

Green Jobs Summit

22 June 2010

ippr’s first Green Jobs Summit is for grassroots and local-level organisations who have an interest in helping to stimulate decent jobs in emerging ‘green’ sectors. Our distinguished panel of speakers will provide examples of innovative ‘bottom up’ initiatives that are helping to provide new green employment opportunities both in the UK and the USA.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss new ideas and to network with like-minded organisations.  We hope that the event will be attended by representatives from trade unions, social justice and environmental campaigns, local councils, social enterprises, environmental industries, service providers, regional bodies and welfare to work providers.

9am – 5pm, Central London location
