Community-Based Action for Just Transitions
Fifth Webinar in the Just Transition Research Collaborative Webinar Series Justice in Low-Carbon Transitions

📅 Tuesday 24 November, 17.00-18.15 CET

Local movements and community organizations are key players in the transition to low-carbon societies. A growing number of frontline groups is mobilizing just transition language and framings to support their fight against racial, gender and social injustices within their communities. This session of our JTRC webinar series will bring together researchers and grassroots activists to discuss the role of community-based efforts in promoting and implementing just transitions and bringing about transformative change at the national and international levels.
