„No Jobs on a Dead Planet“ – Ensuring a Just Energy Transition

Sustainable Development cannot be achieved without addressing climate change and the much needed transformation of our energy systems. A just transition towards a low carbon economy can prevent unemployment and social distress and can have many positive social co-benefits. Principles and indicators of a just energy transition as well as good practice examples and experiences from the Global South will be presented and discussed. The workshop aims at bringing together different stakeholders from trade unions as well as civil society in order to discuss the meaning and the importance of ensuring justice in the process of a global energy transformation away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energies.
