Join us for drinks and discussion at the UK launch of our new book, 'A European Just Transition for a Better World', at Bookmarks bookshop.

About this event

Published in 2022, 'A European Just Transition for a Better World' explores the task of transforming from an extractive economy to a regenerative one in a just and equitable way. In the words of Dirk Holemans, co-President of the Green European Foundation and the book's editor, the just transition marks "the meeting of necessity and ethics".

Chair: Natalie Bennett, former Green Party leader

Speakers include:

  • Dirk Holemans, coordinator of Oikos think tank and Co-President of the Green European Foundation
  • Joaquín Nieto, former Director of the ILO Office for Spain (on the Spanish experience of just transition)
  • Sean Currie, co-Spokesperson for the Federation of Young European Greens (youth perspectives on climate justice)
  • Anne Chapman, Green House (on a just transition in agriculture)

Drinks will be served from 5.30pm and the discussion will begin at 6.30pm, followed by a Q&A until 8pm.

Ahead of the launch event we are running an essay competition for young writers and students, with a prize of £500 for the winning essay on the political potential of the just transition in the UK. Entry pitches to be received by 20th July.

This event is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Green House think tank and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation. The European Parliament is not responsible for the content of this event.
