Title: “Jobs and the transition to net zero”
The net zero transition involves a shift in demand from emission-intensive industries, such as oil and coal, to green industries. In this lecture, we survey what the literature has found about the implications of the green transitions for job creation and destruction of jobs. We then discuss the role skills and occupational mobility may play in employment, and how networks and agent based models can help us better prepare workers for the green transition. Finally, we conclude with further work and the possibility of building a data-driven agent based model linking both the production sector and the labor market sector for the green transition.
