Why a just transition must be public – Workshop

The public sector is a critical pillar in driving a just transition away from fossil fuels. Only the public sector can prioritize the needs of workers and all impacted communities over and above private profit. Just transition legislation must create new public institutions to transform our economy and expand public ownership of the services we need to decarbonize. With these investments, we can make the deep transformation that the climate emergency calls for.

In this workshop you will hear from Hadrian Mertins-Kirkwood, researcher with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and author of Roadmap to a Canadian Just Transition Act, and Angella MacEwen, Economist with CUPE and the Green Economy Network, about the role of the public sector in the just transition.
