Not just transition – but a Just TransitionWatch the webinar here!
A radical climate transition is necessary – but how can we make sure that the rights of workers and communities around the world are protected during this great shift? How do we seize this opportunity to improve women’s working conditions, as our economies are fundamentally redesigned? And what actions are needed from the Global North to achieve a Just Transition for the Global South?
Our climate and the natural world are on the brink of collapse. At the same time, global inequality is soaring and the fight for decent working conditions and workers’ right to organise is still ongoing. These two crises; the planetary crisis and the inequality crisis, are closely linked.
That is why trade unions all over the world are calling for a Just Transition. All jobs need to become green and decent. Workers and communities must have safety and opportunity in this great shift. They must also have a voice in how it is done. Social dialogue is an essential part of a Just Transition.
Join us at this webinar to discuss what steps should be taken during the upcoming Stockholm+50 environmental conference to speed up action for a Just Transition globally.
The event will be in English.
