On 8 March 2024, the Asia and the Pacific region celebrates International Women’s Day (IWD) with the workshop: Empowering Young Women and Girls through Green Skills and Jobs. This side event of the IWD Regional Commemoration will provide an overview on green jobs and sustainable careers in the region.

As the green economy flourishes, creating countless new opportunities, young women and girls still have limited access to employment in sectors such as renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, and eco-friendly technology. Despite the bright prospects, barriers remain, particularly for young women and girls in the Asia and the Pacific region. This workshop aims to provide insights, an outlook on skills development, and a platform for mentorship and networking in green careers.

Event Highlights:

  • Understanding green jobs: Dive into the significance of green employment and explore sectors leading sustainable change.

  • Skills development: Engage in interactive sessions focused on the vital skills for thriving in green careers.

  • Career opportunities: Gain insights from green sector professionals on navigating the job market.

  • Overcoming gender barriers: Learn strategies to challenge and overcome gender biases in green employment.

  • Networking and mentorship: Connect with professionals and mentors for guidance and support.

Who Should Attend: This workshop welcomes young women and girls from all walks of life in the Asia-Pacific region, especially those overcoming educational and employment hurdles. Young men and boys interested in championing gender equality in green careers are also encouraged to participate.

Make a Difference: Participants will leave with enhanced knowledge and skills, becoming part of a supportive network aimed at fostering female leadership in green careers. Together, we can shape policy and practice to ensure women's access to green jobs, driving sustainable development and gender equality across the Asia and the Pacific regions.
