Climate & Jobs – A Winning Equation?


Register for this Event  

Working people are already on the frontlines of climate change, with more than 2.5 million people displaced from their homes because of extreme weather events and changing seasons and will be on the frontlines of the industrial transformation that is a necessity for a zero-carbon future.

In order to manage successfully this ecological transition, linking climate change and job is fundamental in order to guarantee social justice and people’s support. What are the costs of inaction? What are the economic incentives to act to mitigate and adapt to climate change? What king of policies should be put in place by the public and private sectors?
