How can we set in motion the necessary transition towards a balanced and fair model? Join us online as we discuss how we ensure no one gets left behind.
About the Event:
The overflow of natural systems, the extremely rapid loss of global biodiversity or the impacts of climate change are not only a threat to some ecosystems, but to the global balance of the planet and, therefore, to ourselves as a species. Faced with this challenge, we cannot dissociate the search for natural balance from issues such as the future of employment or inequality which, while necessary to try to ensure that the necessary transition is fair, will require a broad social dialogue, as is already happening, for example, with coal mining basins.
In order to approach questions on a just transition, the Green European Foundation and Green Transition together with La Casa Encendidais bringing you thus webinar featuring Laura Martín Murillo, director of the Institute for the Just Transition (Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge), and Joaquín Nieto, director of the International Labour Organization in Spain; in which we will be able to learn about the current situation, the future perspectives and the most urgent issues both nationally and internationally in relation to the just transition. The moderation will be led by political analyst Cristina Monge and we will be welcomed by Dirk Holemans, Co-President of the Green European Foundation.
This webinar is part of the Green European Foundation’s Just Transition transnational project. The project looks into the question 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 GEF in its specific role, is a leading actor in the development of future-proof politics and policies, developed in a sensitive way that keeps in mind local specificities.
