On Tuesday 22nd May 2012 Portsmouth will be visited by the Caravan for One Million Climate Jobs. This is an initiative of the Trade Union Group of The Campaign Against Climate Change whose report in 2010 showed why and how government should create one million jobs to build the low-carbon infrastructure in answer to the crises of unemployment and climate change. The campaign is backed at national level by PCS, UCU, CWU and TSSA. The call for one million green jobs was endorsed by the TUC Conference in 2010. Portsmouth Trades Council will be supporting the Caravan’s visit to Portsmouth and will host an evening public meeting to discuss the implications of the campaign for the Portsmouth area.
