Framings and Design Politics of Just Transitions
Introductory Webinar in the Just Transition Research Collaborative Webinar Series Justice in Low-Carbon Transitions

📅 Tuesday 6 October, 16.00-17.15 CEST

In this first session, the Just Transition Research Collaborative (JTRC) will kick off its webinar series with a discussion of different framings and the design politics of just transitions that shape current debates on low-carbon development and recovery from COVID. The session will bring together research on the role of labour and working people in demanding a just transition with a discussion of specific policy responses and proposals based on examples from Latin America. The webinar will showcase entry points and key questions that need to be tackled in order to advance justice in low-carbon transitions.
