Workshop GreenDay – “Hope great Works green”

24 June 2019, from 8.30 AM to 1 PM – Aula Magna of Palazzo delle Scienze – Corso Italia 55, Catania

Hope great Works green” is the title of the Green Day Workshop organised by Fondazione CS MARE in Catania in partnership with Sicily Region, the Economics & Enterprise Department of the University of Catania and its Training & Placement Center.

The aim is to raise the awareness of the world of training about the needs of the employment market and to bring closer universities, green-oriented companies and Economics students; it is an open dialogue on the Green Economy, in order to define training programmes grounded on the sustainability of the territory.

“Green Economy” is today a real economic model, based on limiting the impact on the environment of every action performed by citizens and companies, but also on managing resources efficiently along with socially inclusive policies, where technology and scientific knowledge play a major role.

Consequently, the increasing demand of “green” jobs, raised from traditionally green sectors such as electricity production from renewable sources (photovoltaic and wind sectors), concerns today the whole sectors of manufacturing and services. Companies investing in eco-efficiency increasingly require high competences and a strong specialisation, especially in R&D, marketing, communications and design.
