Gender and Just Transitions
Third Webinar in the Just Transition Research Collaborative Webinar Series Justice in Low-Carbon Transitions

📅 Tuesday 27 October, 16.00-17.15 CET

For this third session in our series, join us for a conversation that will explore the interlinkages between gender justice and just transition. How do lived experiences differ for women in the male-dominated industries that receive much of the attention in current just transition debates? And what would a gender just transition look like? Based on examples from the US, Europe and Africa, we will delve into a debate about what kinds of just transitions hold the potential to achieve gender justice and why changing the value of different kinds of work might be necessary in order to achieve low-carbon sustainable development.
