The climate crisis and ensuring a just transition beyond carbon

Wednesday 10 November 2021 - 10/11/21

QUB– Peter Froggatt Centre 0G.007

 

About this event

This event will take place at Queen’s University Belfast and will involve panel talks and discussions, followed by a Q&A session on the crucial role of trade unions in climate action.

With growing awareness of the climate crisis, the focus is now shifting towards climate action and how to transition societies beyond their dependence on fossil fuels. For some this means that this transition is now inevitable. However, whether it will be “just” is not. This discussion will examine the crucial role of the trades’ union movement (where the idea of a ‘just transition’ originated) in contributing to the political process of managing this transition in a manner that is inclusive, democratic and where no community or section of society or the workforce is left behind.

This event will be led by John Barry, Professor of Green Political Economy and Co–director of the Centre for Sustainability at Queen’s. Panel members will include Hilary Wainwright, University of Bradford, Susan Fitzgerald, Unite the Union’s Regional Industrial Officer for Northern Ireland, and Dr. Stiofán Ó Nualláin, co–director of Trademark Belfast, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions political education and anti–sectarian unit.
