This week’s Rio+20 Summit must propel Australia into a better model of city planning through building new opportunities for green jobs. As the government’s lax commitment to various solar power schemes shows, Australia is not giving the issue of green jobs the attention it deserves.
The United Nations estimates the number of green jobs worldwide will increase to over 18 million by 2030. This is heartening news.
It means that every year 750,000 new green jobs will be created if distributed equally. Of these, 59 per cent will be within biofuel and related industries, and 31 per cent from solar power generation.
