Should a Green Center focus on education, retraining, and/or workforce needs? These terms need to be defined, for example is retraining for workers
to have extra skills or for re-employment? Is the focus of education for high school, college or at the graduate-level? What success stories are out
there? Any specific to the autos? How are automotive industry workforce issues addressed?
