    The workshop Greening, Economies, Enterprises and Jobs will represent a good opportunity to get an overview of the debate on sustainable development, understand the main environmental challenges and their implications for business and discuss the role that Employers’ Organisations might play at national and international level. The workshop will also be the occasion to present the recently released training package on this subject which was jointly developed by the Programme for Employers Activities and the Programme on Employment Policies and Skills Development of the ITC ILO, the Bureau for Employers’ Activities and the Green Jobs Programme of the ILO.

    Objectives

    Global expected outcome

    Employers’ Organizations have increased their capacity to effectively participate in national, regional and international policy debates on green growth and green enterprise and to provide relevant services in this field for their company members.

    Training objectives

    More specifically, at the end of the workshop, participating EOs representatives will have strengthened their capacity to:

    • Understand the policy and advocacy implications at national level, taking inspiration from other peer organizations to develop fact based policy positions and participate in national debates on environment and green economy.

    • Discuss policy and advocacy issues at regional and national level through the access to a network of EO representatives who can support policy formulation.

    • Provide a sustainable service offer in the environmental area.

    At the end of the training EOs representatives will formulate an action plan for institutional implementation.
