Ranjan K Baruah *



We are always looking for clean air and water and this is possible when we have a clean environment. We are already aware about climate change and how it is affecting our mother earth. It is important as well as responsibility for each and every one of us to contribute for the environment positively.

In this regard we can think of our careers related to environment and also think of green skills. Lets us understand what is green skills and green jobs. This will help us in choosing our careers related to green future.

According to National Centre for Vocational Education Research, Australia, green skills means ‘technical skills, knowledge, values and attitudes needed in the workforce to develop and support sustainable social, economic and environmental outcomes in business, industry and the community.’

On the other hand according to European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) green skills means ‘ abilities needed to live in, develop and support a society which aims to reduce the negative impact of human activity on the environment.’ There might be other definition but in simple we conclude that skills which are important and needed for the safeguard of our mother earth and which will add towards sustainable development.

Similarly green jobs are decent jobs that contribute to preserve or restore the environment, be they in traditional sectors such as manufacturing and construction, or in new, emerging green sectors such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. Green jobs are must for mitigating climate change and preserve our nature.
