The New Green Team: Local government, sustainable energy, jobs and skills

31st January, 11-2, Congress House

Come and take part in this important seminar to discuss how politicians, unions and employers could respond at national and local level to ensure that local authorities can create jobs and cut carbon in their communities.

  • Caroline Lucas MP, Leader of the Green Party
  • Frances O'Grady, Deputy General Secretary, TUC
  • Cllr Richard Williams, Opposition Leader, Southampton Council
  • Solar industry representative - tbc
  • Mark Bramah, Assistant Chief Executive, APSE
  • Union speaker - tbc

A new report for UNISON, supported by the TUC, shows how local government can play a major role in our economic recovery and in efforts to ensure that the UK meets its targets on carbon emissions and renewables.  This approach involves bringing together local governments economic and environmental agendas together in a more systematic way, creating green & decent jobs through the installation of community scale renewables and roll out of energy efficiency programmes.   

The New Green Team was written for UNISON by the Association for Public Services Excellence (APSE) and was based on extensive interviews with local authorities.  Such an approach requires a supportive framework from government.  Recent announcements, especially the decision by the government to reduce the Feed in Tariff, suggest just the opposite.
