Abstract: In this publication ‘Green jobs for social inclusion’, we present a number of examples of how cities are combining the objective of becoming greener with social and labour market inclusion of vulnerable groups. We demonstrate how public intervention at the local level can help people with low employability profiles gain employment. The examples cover a range of activities in a variety of areas, from energy efficiency, waste management and greening public spaces, to circular economy, upcycling and green construction (see table 1 for overview). They also illustrate different models: initiatives run by the city directly, and others implemented in partnership with private and third-sector organisations.
