The lecture dealt with the book of the same title, based on his master’s degree in public policies developed at the Universities of Humboldt in Berlin and Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), in which the author presents a proposal for application of the concepts of employment and green work, as well as the indicator of density of green jobs, allowing a more precise construction on jobs and their environmental impact. An interesting discussion on possibilities of applying the indicator followed the lecture.
