BLUE GREEN JOBS

WaterCity Logo Transparant.png

According to the United Nations, almost half of the world's workers, 1.5 billion people work in water related sectors.

Milwaukee's emergence as a model Water City can and should create and sustain water related jobs for our residents.  We believe Milwaukee residents can not only find employment related to water, but also become water stewards through their work responsibilities.

We have adopted the term "blue-green jobs" to describe jobs that support responsible stewardship of our water resources.  We believe that "blue-green jobs" for Milwaukee residents can support livelihoods and quality of life, while conserving and protecting water.
