Year 2009
Level City or Town, County
State(s) Kansas
Policy Areas Education, Energy, Environment & Natural Resources
This report focuses on an association of city and county governments and metropolitan planning organizations which collaborate to identify new training needs of Kansas City area businesses attempting to adapt to sustainable energy and energy efficiency opportunities. Key findings discusses in this report include that educational institutions and unions need to incorporate significantly more green knowledge and practices into their existing training; if we rely solely on incentives, there is a danger that green practices may fade away when the incentives do; and green knowledge starts at the top—architecture, design, universities and manager professionals need to understand and adopt green practices to enable construction workers to build green.
