Learning Materials on Green Economy


Green economy is attracting the attention of policy-makers, stakeholders, and business agents from around the world. The number of countries developing and implementing green economy strategies is growing.

But do you know what green economy means in practice? Or what are the approaches to ensure successful green economy policies?

Introductory Learning Materials on Green Economy

The PAGE Introductory Learning Materials on Green Economy are organized around 40 key topics and contain easily digestible knowledge on a number of green economy issues. They are available in PowerPoint and PDF format with detailed speakers’ notes providing further information and case examples.

The materials have been created to support green economy learning activities in developing countries. They might be used, for example, by resource persons providing an introduction to the green economy concept at a national workshop. Furthermore, the materials can be used at any non-profit learning event or serve to enrich one’s understanding about the Green Economy as a self-study tool.

The Introductory Learning Materials on Green Economy have been developed by UNITAR within the framework of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy, a one-UN initiative, which includes UNEP, UNIDO, ILO, UNDP, and UNITAR.
