The Jobs of Our Future

Climate neutrality & digitalisation is the twin transition ahead of us. The impact on jobs and the required skills are huge. Time to get prepared.

Being climate neutral by 2050 means transforming fundamentally the way we work today. To accelerate the decarbonisation, energy policies and digitalization have to go hand in hand.

This "twin transition" won't only be about creating completely new jobs - but about transforming professions that we have known for a long time. However, our industries and economies realise that they do not have enough skilled labour to meet the demands of the energy and digital transition.

The shortage of skilled labour is becoming a more and more pressing issue, as this may jeopardise our prosperity in Europe. It also puts our climate and energy targets at risk. Now is the moment to address the changes needed for the energy and digital transition and the risk of labour shortage.

FES Just Climate compiled an infographic to visualise how will the different jobs change and which skills will be needed in the future.
