Just Transitions, Power and Politics
Sixth and Final Webinar in the Just Transition Research Collaborative Webinar Series Justice in Low-Carbon Transitions

📅 Wednesday 9 December, 17.00-18.15 CET

In this final session of the Just Transition Research Collaborative webinar series, we will focus on power and politics and unpack what has happened to Just Transitions in the five years since the Paris Agreement was adopted. The session will explore whether and how narratives of Just Transition have changed in that time, in terms of their ambitions, inclusiveness and the issues they address.

Looking at more recent developments such as the Covid-19 pandemic, our panelists will reflect on emerging discussions around the value of different kinds of work and the potential for using moments of crisis and change as an opportunity to put economies on a different, fairer, low-carbon path.
