Do you want to know what Just Transition really means? Are you interested to know how we can transition to a sustainable and fair economy? Then our Just Transition series is the right place to start, and this first webinar will cover the basics. 

About the Event:

To introduce the concept of Just Transition to a wider audience, Oikos and the Green European Foundation invite Béla Galgóczi, senior researcher at ETUI (European Trade Union Institute). In this online interview, Béla will explain to us what Just Transition really means, and which currents and recent developments there are. He will also give some concrete examples from the world of work.

Context:

The Just Transition project has as its aim to inspire and inform citizens about the implications of a just transition to a highly sustainable economy, which involves more than technical measures. We need a new economic system that cares for people and the planet, in which all costs and benefits are fairly distributed. How do we sustainably transform our labour market? How do we make sure the transition to renewables is inclusive and equitable? These are some of the questions we try to answer.

Speakers:

Béla Galgóczi, ETUI (European Trade Union Institute)
