Supporting Youth to Enter The Green Economy

  • Adding $1 million over four years to the Clean Foundation of Nova Scotia’s Clean Energy Training Program.
  • Committing an additional $2 million over four years to the Clean Leadership Summer Internship Program.
  • Supporting youth internships in climate change, clean tech, waste management, and food security.
  • Creating pathways for youth who identify as Indigenous, Mi’kmaq, Black, African Nova Scotian, and/or a person of African descent.

As our commitment to green technology, renewable energy, and the green economy grows, our skilled workforce must develop as well. Young people are passionate about supporting our communities to take action to fight climate change and to adopt greener, lower carbon technologies.

Our government will add an additional $1 million for four years in Clean Foundation Nova Scotia’s Clean Energy Training Program for students who identify as African Nova Scotian, Black, Indigenous, and/or Mi’kmaq to enter the green economy as energy advisors and clean energy trade workers. The program will offer hands-on-training, job shadowing, equipment, and a paid internship to develop the next generation of environmental leaders.

In addition, a re-elected Liberal government will commit an additional $2 million over 4 years to the Clean Leadership Summer Internship Program, to meet the growing demand for youth learning and training for the green economy. Participants will complete internship projects across the province in focus areas such as climate change mitigation, clean tech, waste management, and food security. Youth will work in a paid hands-on environment, connect with mentors, and access professional development training. Specialized streams will be available for youth who identify as Indigenous, Mi’kmaq, Black, African Nova Scotian, or a person of African descent.
