Global Just Transition(s): From sectoral transition to systemic transformation – Workshop Report

Eco-union and Global Climate Forum, in collaboration with Climate Action Network and WWF-Europe, organized a workshop on “Global Just Transition(s): From sectoral transition to systemic transformation” which was held on Friday, June 18, 2021.

In this workshop, around 60 participants from Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific discussed the holistic idea for just transitions to deliver true social and environmental justice across society, building on examples and experiences from carbon-intensive or dependent regions and countries.

The workshop focused on improving the national or regional Just Transition frameworks in order to evolve them into a truly global and multi-sectoral concept. The online session took the format of an opening dialogue, followed by panel discussions (in plenary and break-out rooms) with invited participants from different sectors and countries.

The conclusions aimed to inform and inspire the further development of the Just Transformation concept and lead to the identification of international partners to build global multi-stakeholder coalitions for Just Transformation.
