Engage in a political and expert debate on how just transition principles can be implemented during a pandemic and climate crisis to shape fair and sustainable policies for work. If interested, then join us for this online event on JUST TRANSITION!
About the Event:
The webinar will offer a space for debate among representatives of various organisations from both North and South on both sides of the Atlantic to discuss how just transition in Europe can be shaped through futureproof policies, for the benefit of decent working conditions and well being of all, both in the EU and at global level. Join this webinar to learn more about Just Transition.
JUST TRANSITION as transnational project aims to tackle the challenge of transforming from an extractive to a regenerative economy in a just and equitable way to find the necessary support among the population. It seeks to show that the green family, including Green European Foundation in its specific role, is a leading actor in the development of futureproof politics and policies, developed in a sensitive way that keeps in mind local specificities. Project partners are working together in conducting research on the Just Transition and currently drafting a paper on its different dimensions.
In a world characterized by multi-level governance, just transition initiatives are needed at different levels: from companies and sectors, over cities and regions, to nations and the European Union. At all these levels, specific challenges, groups of stakeholders and power relations make clear that there is not a ‘one fits all’ model of just transition. This also shows the need to document cases at different levels, in different regions.
This webinar opens a series of three online events on JUST TRANSITION which will take place in November and December 2020.
