Quick, clean energy jobs for Victoria
With jobs looming as a major state election issue, and growing concerns about the social and environmental cost of fossil fuels, what are the options for quickly boosting employment in Victoria in the renewable energy industry? What sort of jobs could be created and what other benefits would they bring to the community?
On 3 April, Environment Victoria and the Clean Energy Council hosted a forum at Melbourne University's Harold Woodruff Theatre to explore these questions.
