This week, Craig talks to Keith Baker, Abi Truebig and Alison Anderson from green skills and retraining consultancy Pattiesmuir, they discuss how the coming Green transition presents opportunities for Scotland to create green jobs but that there’s still a gap in Scottish politics on how to train and retrain people to fill those jobs. They also discuss their plans to host a conference later this year called Engineering Change to develop their ideas with the sectors most closely linked to the Just Transition.
