Economic recession has not tarnished the essential win-win proposition behind campaigns for green jobs: we don’t have to choose between employment and the environment; it is possible to address pollution and poverty simultaneously. Tune in as we explore issues of supply and demand in the green job market, delving into two different programs that prepare people for green careers in a variety of fields, such as construction, architecture, engineering, hazardous waste operations and emergency response, occupational safety and health, waste management, recycling, water reuse and sanitation, weatherization, and solar installation. In studio to discuss the promise and prospects of green job readiness are Kelle McMahon of The Green Science Academy, Art Shanks of Cypress Mandela Training Center, and Johnny Harper, a Cypress Mandela graduate who now works for DeSilva Gates Construction.
