Event description
Our panel will be discussing the just transition and whether it will be enough to salvage the damage done to our planet.

About this event

As economies around the world begin to reopen after the pandemic, scientists are arguing that governments must urgently seek greener economic solutions, to keep average global temperature increases below 1.5C. Developed by the trade union movement, the just transition framework has already been adopted by the United States in the Green New Deal, and the European Union to aid fossil fuel-dependent regions to move toward carbon neutrality. But can we realistically bring together social and climate justice to tackle industrial carbon emissions and the jobs crisis?

Chaired by George Monbiot, and with leading carbon footprinting consultant and professor and fellow of the Institute for Social Futures at Lancaster University Mike Berners Lee and General Secretary, Wales TUC, Shavanah Taj, our panel will explore what the just transition would look like, which governments are taking steps in the right direction, and what the regional and international social impacts might be. Further speakers to be announced.
