A project is where you put forth your ideas for a specific area or scope. Collaborators make proposals to reach the goal of the project.
You can start debates, run a blog and conduct a survey. You can also set periodical meetings to make decisions about the project. You can start debates, run a blog and conduct a survey. You can also set periodical meetings to make decisions about the project. Some of these meetings are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken).
Examples: A project for the betterment of urban drinking water, a project to reduce plastic use, etc.
Did you ever want to switch to a green job? Now is your chance! Help us defining which factors are being taken into account when choosing a job.
The rapidly growing attention to growth models that are environmentally sustainable and reduce carbon footprint drives developed and developing countries to accelerate the transition to a cleaner, greener growth. Some levers can make this transition faster and more enduring, education, skills, and talent development is one such area. The transition to greener economies requires a pool of professional (e.g., architects and engineers) and vocational (mechanics and technicians) workers. The availability of adequate talent, particularly for innovation, research, and development for a greener economy, will foster new and innovative solutions and more cost-efficient and -effective technical approaches, financial models, and implementation capacities to achieve a successful transition. Countries need to consider building the green growth knowledge base, such as setting up national education initiatives for green and climate-resilient development and possibly a national climate education clearinghouse of knowledge.
Purpose of action
We aspire to make the transition process of finding green jobs using their existing skills as stress-free and smooth for the workers as possible. Currently there is still a of information about the opportunities in each sector to help the individual see for his or her new career path. We must understand that the decision to change careers is preceded by a long process involving the evaluation of current opportunities and the comparison with future opportunities. Therefore, this lack of detailed information regarding green jobs makes the transition quite challenging. It is difficult for a person to choose between the existing framework of conformity and uncertainty about the future profession due to the lack of information. With our project, we want to facilitate the transition to green jobs for individual workers.

With a large-scale survey we want to gather citizen data collecting the factors that play a key role when individuals are choosing a job and the company they want to work for. The survey is primarily targeting people working in non-green energy jobs in Germany. However, also other European Citizens are welcome to participate in the survey.
