CoP on Green Jobs for South Africa

 March 2015 - Open


Banner GJ4SA

We are happy to announce the launch of an online community of practice on Green Jobs for South Africa (CoP GJ4SA) with the view to build an interactive network of practitioners working on green jobs in South Africa. The overall aim of this online Community of Practice (CoP) is to have a common space where we can boost our knowledge sharing, promote problem-solving, and tap into each other’s expertise

For whom?

This community of practice (CoP) is tailor-made for practitioners from national and provincial governments, civil society organisations and the private sector in South Africa who are or will be working on green jobs. 

Supporting partners & Moderators

The CoP is part of a  two-year training programme (2014-15) which seeks to promote green jobs and decent work in the transition to a greener economy in South Africa. The programme is funded by the Green Fund and implemented by the International Training Centre of the ILO, in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Affairs of South Africa, the Development Bank of Southern Africa, the ILO Green Jobs Programme and the ILO Decent Work Team for Eastern and Southern Africa.



What is a CoP and what can I learn from this CoP? 

A CoP offers many functionalities. An online forum is also at your disposal to share good practices and trigger discussions on green economy topics. Through this central access point, you’ll be able to connect with different faces and voices, deliberate on similar challenges, and propose solutions through tools and techniques available online. The forum can be accessed by clicking on the forum icon.

Further information on how to navigate this CoP can be found in the userguide.
