Peter Poschen of the International Labour Organization and Michael Renner of Worldwatch Institute will present the new ILO-UNEP report Green Jobs: Towards Decent Work in a Sustainable, Low-Carbon World, released at UN Headquarters in New York on September 24, 2008.

Commentators include Sean Sweeney of Cornell University; Jill Kubit of Cornell University; Norine Kennedy of the U.S. Council for International Business; and Heather Grady of Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative. Devin Stewart of Carnegie Council will moderate the discussion.

The Green Jobs Initiative was launched to assess, analyze, and promote the creation of decent jobs as a consequence of the environmental policies needed to combat global warming. The core strategy calls for employment generation and poverty alleviation within climate mitigation and adaptation programs. Green Jobs is a joint initiative of the United Nations Environment Program, the International Labour Organization, the International Organisation of Employers, and the International Trade Union Confederation, with research assistance from the Cornell University Global Labor Institute and the Worldwatch Institute.
