Webinar – Green jobs: A better future for rural youth

16 November 2023 | 15:00-16:00 CET

Promoting green jobs for rural youth can contribute to the much-needed shift towards more inclusive, environmentally sustainable, and resilient practices in agri-food systems, while helping to address rising youth unemployment. According to ILO’s estimates, Investments in the green economy can create 8.4 million jobs for young people by 2030, including many in rural areas.

This webinar, organized by the Thematic Working Group on Rural Youth Employment (TWG RYE), brought together TWG RYE members, experts, development practitioners, and youth to foster knowledge exchange on innovative solutions to boost green jobs for rural youth and hone commitments ahead of COP28. Speakers discussed effective policy interventions to promote green jobs for rural youth and advance a just transition in agri-food systems and rural areas. Special attention paid to actions that give a voice to and engage rural youth in key policy processes.
