Work Foundation: COP26 Festival - Skills for Net Zero in Lancashire

Reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050 will require a transformative shift in our economy. As jobs available and the skills employers need start to change, a range of new training pathways offering training and careers guidance will be needed.
Lancashire is one part of the country where changes are already playing out due to the emergence of a thriving green business community, but lessons from the region will be relevant to other areas as Central Government and regions across the country wrestle with the economic and social changes driven by the net zero ambition.
Building on recent joint Work Foundation and Lancashire Enterprise Partnership research this event explores the challenge of ensuring the skills system can equip low carbon businesses to grow and contribute to the county meeting its net zero ambitions.
