Just transition

“Just Transition” is the call for a socially just response to the climate crisis. A profound transformation of the economy is long overdue in light of the worsening ecological and social crises. This also means that some industrial sectors will not and should not have a future in their current form. The concept of “Just Transition”, originally developed by trade unions, essentially states that the transformation of the economy needs to be shaped democratically and not at the expense of employees and the socially disadvantaged.
