Abstract: The way how the human resources are managed has become increasingly important. Thus, human resources have become an important factor for the economic development. The sustainable development cannot be achieved without taking into account the human resources. Such an approach would even lead to the loss of the social welfare. In order to avoid the influence of the climate change, the transition to an energy system with low-carbon emissions is needed. This system is offered by the green economy. This paper presents an analysis of the human resources importance in the context of the green economy. Here are presented information regarding the public participation in education and training programs. There are discussed issues related to the renewables, as well. The decisions taken by the human resources have a major impact on the economic progress. For this reason, the level of education of the human resources has a direct impact on human activities.
