Workers and the World: Climate breakdown and Worker Solidarity

Date
Tue 24.09.19
Timings
11am – 12:30pm

This session is for climate activists looking to build common causes with workers who will be affected by the transition to a zero carbon economy. How do we ensure the move to zero emissions is done fairly? How can we ensure that those most affected by climate change are at the heart of the movement tackling it? Where are the fights happening now for green jobs, and where is solidarity needed?
