A major characteristic of successful regional economies is a skilled workforce. Oregon's next economy, our greener economy, demands world class talent. The Oregon Workforce Partnership. the alliance of local workforce investment boards, recently published a paper outlining guiding principles for a greener economy. These principles are:
1.Transitioning to a Green Economy Requires Systems Thinking & Enhanced Strategic Partnerships. Oregon must develop a comprehensive, systemic approach to catalyze transformation and align investments, strategies, policies, and incentives. This can only be achieved by creating strategic partnerships of players who do not typically work together.
2. Think Globally, Act Locally. Economic and workforce development happens at the local level. Use the opportunity created by the growing green economy to increase local alignment of economic and workforce development strategies to further green goals.
3. Focus First on Real Jobs & Real Demand. The development of a green/sustainable economy must be demand-driven, led by private/public sector partnerships.Local Workforce Investment Boards are skilled in convening these sector partnerships and provide logical forums for grounding proposed training and skill enhancement initiatives in the real world demands of industry for green economy workers.
