Are Green Jobs a Pathway out of Poverty?

with Elena Foshay

Sustainability—it’s a characteristic we want to see in energy sources as well as work opportunities. But can clean-energy initiatives and workforce development go hand-in-hand?

We talked with Elena Foshay, Community Energy Program Manager at the Center for Energy and Environment in Minneapolis, about how clean-energy investment and equitable access to economic opportunity can develop together.

Be sure to read Elena’s Clearinghouse article, “Green Jobs: Myth or Pathway out of Poverty?”
