ECO-GREENS UNVEIL PROPOSAL FOR GREEN JOBS

"ECO-GREENS UNVEIL PROPOSAL FOR GREEN JOBSGreece's 'Ecologists-Greens' or 'Eco-Greens' party on Thursday unveiled a
proposal for the creation of 100,000 new jobs in the country through
""green"" investments to the amount of some 500 billion euros. The party said
this was part of a campaign launched by the European Green Party that
envisions the creation of five million such ""green"" jobs throughout Europe.The proposal was unveiled during a press conference by Mihalis Tremopoulos,
who heads the Eco-Greens election ticket for the European Parliament
elections. He said it would be discussed in two seminars entitled ""From
economic crisis and the crisis of the growth model to a Green Economy and a
Green New Deal - Green solutions to the crisis"" that will take place in
Athens on February 20 and Thessaloniki on February 22.Tremopoulos noted in statements that ""a real exit [from the crisis] exists
only if we address the economic crisis with policies that also address the
environmental crisis, especially the threat to the climate"".Among the party's proposals are programmes funded by the state for projects
such as the large-scale installation of insulation in buildings, funding
for photovoltaic roofs to produce clean energy and diverting the existing
construction industry to improving energy efficiency in existing buildings
rather than building new ones, thus creating thousands of jobs without
further burdening the environment.According to economist Thanassis Makris, for example, just the thermal
insulation and bioclimatic adjustment of existing buildings would suffice
to keep the construction sector occupied for the next 20 years. Other
proposals made by the party refer to the energy sector, transport, forests,
urban environment, water conservation, recycling and tourism.Speakers at the seminars planned by the party include Greens MEP and
spokesman Pierre Jonckheer, in charge of economy issues and vice-president
of the European Parliament's Green Party group and Hans-Josef Fell of the
German Green Party, who founded the Energy Watch Group and framed the
German Renewable Energy Sources Law with Hermann Scheer.To read the source article click hereFor the latest renewable energy jobs please click here"
