Join us to debate the role of workers and Trade Unions in the Just Transition!

About the event

As the cost-of-living bites across Europe and trade union disputes spread like wildfire, could renewed agency for workers help break climate politics open and deliver a just transition? Speakers include Matthew Hull, newly elected Trade Union Liaison Officer on GPEx, Anne Chapman, former co-chair of Green House, Robert Magowan, author of the aviation chapter in A European Just Transition for a Better World, and more.


This event is organized by the Green European Foundation (GEF) with the support of Green House Think Tank as part of the transnational GEF Just Transition project.

This project tackles the question of a Just Transition – 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 futureproof politics and policies, developed in a sensitive way that keeps in mind local specificities.
