Green Economy Jobs

Scotland is on a green journey.

To achieve ambitious climate change goals, we need to work together across all sectors to create a workforce with the required skills and understanding of sustainability. This will drive forward a truly green economy.

This campaign aims to inform and encourage everyone to think about the impact they can make - within their own career choices.

We worked with academics, business owners, employees and industry experts on a series of short films . They explain the meaning of green jobs, by sharing real life examples and opinions on the green economy.

We invite you to watch, learn more and share our films.

Join us by making "smarter choices for a greener future!"
