Global Change Civilization is on the brink of a new industrial order. The big winners in the increasingly fierce global scramble for supremacy will not be those who simply make commodities faster and cheaper than the competition. They will be those who develop talent, techniques, and tools that are so advanced that there is no competition.
National Education Challenge Can this possibility happen soon enough? President-elect Obama needs to make it a national priority, like Kennedy did with the moonshot. Set goals, commit to government backed research, reward innovation and stimulate entrepreneurship. Russell Hancock, President and CEO of Joint Venture : Silicon Valley Network Mercury New Article STEM education is a national challenge, and the aerospace industry recognizes the stakeholder’s interest in maintaining U.S. global leadership and competitiveness must react to the pressing workforce challenge…..as the nation responded to the former Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik in 1957. Aerospace Industry Association
Success Factors • Solutions to this difficult national problem must involve identifying and leveraging those people and factors that influence career orientation for K-12 students. • Sweeping and coordinated steps are essential now to ensure the ongoing competitiveness of our nation and the success of the industry. • A roadmap to developing workforce to enable success. • One case study in industry investment, partnership and mentorship.
Workforce Prospects San Jose 2007 Green Vision Initiative which would include the creation of 25,000 clean tech jobs by 2023. By 2023 the number of direct and indirect jobs related to renewable energy and energy efficiency is expected to reach 40 million. With an expected growth rate of about 1.3 million jobs per year. Policies that mandate cutting greenhouse-gas emissions, such as the state's landmark law known as AB 32, will require energy-efficiency improvements that will mean 403,000 new jobs, with a payroll of $48 billion and a contribution of $76 billion to the gross state product by 2020, according to David Roland-Holst.
