OECD-Cedefop green skills forum – Call for papers

Appel à contribution de l’OCDE et du Cedefop :

Following our pre-annoucement of July 2011, we are pleased to inform you that Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training and the OECD Local Economic and Employment Development Programme (LEED) are organising a joint Green Skills Forum to be held at OECD Headquarters in Paris on 27th February 2012.The forum aims to draw on lessons from work conducted by the OECD, Cedefop, and other organisations on the implications of the green economy for skills development and training policies. These insights will contribute to the OECD’s Green Growth Strategy studies such as the LEED project on Measuring the Potential of Green Growth and to Cedefop’s Green Skills activities, which contribute to the European Commission’s initiative on New Skills for New Jobs.We invite contributors to submit proposals of a maximum 500 words to the conference organisers by 1 December 2011. For more information, please refer to the enclosed call for papers.People who would like to attend the forum without presenting a paper are highly welcome too. The website containing more information as well as registration will be available soon.
