What Would a Just Transition to a Green Economy Look Like?
With Alison McIntosh, Research Manager at the Parkland Institute
Interested in learning more about what “just transition” to a green economy means – and should mean, for women in particular? Going beyond the current mainstream understanding to a truly just transition requires addressing existing inequalities among workers, and incorporating social equity from the beginning.
We will look at Parkland Institute’s previous work on just transition issues, including at the intersection with gender, and some emerging stuff on the green new deal (for Canada).
Group discussion will explore personal intersections with just transition & dreams for a green new deal.
Join us for an evening of learning, dreaming and discussion!
