The Cincinnati/Hamilton County community has identified a pressing need for transitioning to a sustainable, green economy, specifically creating quality green jobs. This was a significant finding during the community engagement process of the 2023 Green Cincinnati Plan. The project aims to support low-income communities by creating training programs, career development pathways, and comprehensive career support in sync with job growth sectors.

FUSE Executive Fellow Thanapat Vichitchot will work with a diverse group of institutional and community partners to facilitate planning discussions to achieve an inclusive green workforce action plan. The impact of his work is expected to be far-reaching as the region’s workforce ecosystem will take over and lead the future agenda’s implementation. Thanapat will also review the current landscape, identify scalable successful strategies, and formulate a comprehensive agenda and implementation framework, ensuring community needs, equity, and alignment with local workforce strategies.
