CAW Launches New Course Re Good Jobs in a Green Economy

Twenty-five CAW rank-and-file activists attended the first pilot session of a new course that ran from October 3-6. The program included keynote speakers Tony Clarke, Executive Director of the Polaris Institute and Gideon Forman, Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment. The course provided an overview of some of the key environmental issues, including climate change, food security and water issues, and discussed the transformation needed to fight for a green economy, examined the impacts on workers and the role that unions can play, and enabled participants to build activist links within the CAW and with allied environmental organizations.
