Together with our partner organisation Polekol we are are organising an event to present our book “A European Just Transition for a Better World” in Belgrade.
About the event
The transition to a green economy and stronger action against climate are imperative, there’s no doubt. However, it is equally important that in this process no one gets left behind, especially those who are already in a vulnerable position. That’s why Polekol, together with partners from Belgium, Spain, Finland, Great Britain, Macedonia and Croatia, joined this project and contributed to the book “European Just Transition for a Better World” whose aim is to look at key topics related to a just and green transition.
What makes this book unique is the pan-European and global approach, which looks at a just transition in a wider context, as well as the green perspective it describes. Authors and chapters include the European Union (EU) and the Global South, with a particular focus on Namibia and Colombia.
The book covers many aspects, including historical perspectives, regional approaches, European policy developments, youth perspectives and industries in transition, with a focus on specific struggles, such as unemployment.
‘’Only a vision of transition that considers the complexity, context dependency and interconnections of the multiple challenges that we face will be able to bring about the radical change that is so urgently needed. This shows that you cannot implement environmental policies without a social framework. Or, in other words: either climate policy will be social or it will not ‘be’ at all.’’ is a quote from the editor of the book, Dirk Holemans from the Belgian Think Tank, Oikos.
