SwitchMed will be participating in The Academy on Green Jobs Promotion in the MENA Region which will take place at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT) in Alexandria, Egypt, from 29 October to 2 November 2017. This one-week capacity-building event aims to discuss how the potential for green jobs in the MENA region could be realised. The overall purpose is to contribute to enhancing institutional capacities for transformative change towards greener and more inclusive economies.

The Academy on Green Jobs Promotion in the MENA Region intends to provide insights in the practical ways how to realize the full employment potential of low-emission, climate resilient and resource efficient strategies.

The Academy will bring together 120 participants from Egypt and MENA countries, as well as others interested in adopting low-carbon and climate-resilient green economy strategies that generate decent jobs, particularly for young women and men, including policy and decisions makers, members of civil society organizations, trade unions, private sector, alongside with staff and practitioners from ILO and its partner agencies, collaborating ministries and funding partners.
