Working for the Climate - Online Launch event and Seminar

Just Transition towards a carbon-neutral future is among the most urgent environmental, social, and economic issues of our times. Acknowledging this 14 trade union confederations from six countries have come together to show how Just Transition can be implemented on the national and European level to reach a carbon-free society. Therefore, we are proud to invite you to the presentation and discussion of the joint Nordic and German project “The Road Towards a Carbon-Free Society: A Nordic-German Trade Union Cooperation on Just Transition”.

We are eager to discuss the necessary steps towards a Just Transition with Tuula Haatainen (the Finnish Minister of Employment), Christiane Averbeck (Executive Director of the Climate Alliance Germany), Reiner Hoffmann (Chairman of the German DGB), Antti Palola (President of NFS and of the Finnish trade union confederation STTK), Jytte Guteland (MEP Member of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety), Bente Sorgenfrey (Vice President FH Denmark and Vice President ETUC) and you!

You can read more about the webinar, the speakers, and the project on the project website. The country reports and the synthesis will be published on the website on the day of the event.

Register for the webinar here. Registrations for the webinar will be open until 10th March.

Please note that the event will be held in English.
