Event description

Description

Modeled after last year’s successful event in Edmonton, Just Transition and Good Green Jobs for Alberta 2017 offers engaging and informative presenters and discussions. Audience participation and dialogue with experts will guide discussion about how to create conditions for successful transitions for impacted workers and communities.

We want to hear from you! Join us in Calgary as we work through tough issues including the phase out of coal-fired electricity generation, what is needed for a just transition, and how to ensure good jobs for Albertans and Canadians.

Our keynote speaker is Samantha Smith, Director of the ITUC's Just Transition Centre. She will bring examples from around the globe of how others have managed successful transitions and share best practices we can apply at home.

Dave Thompson, Principal at PolicyLink Research Canada, will share background and summarize work to date on just transitions.

Gil McGowan, President of the Alberta Federation of Labour, will share where things stand with the Province and company negotiations on the 2030 coal-fired electricity phase out and his thoughts on next steps.

Audience participation and discussions with experts will explore how to create the conditions for successful transitions for impacted workers and communities.

This is a pay-what-you-can event (suggested contribution $50) that includes a continental breakfast, buffet lunch, and great conversations with labour and environmental activists from Alberta and across the country.
