Description

Blue Green Canada's 3rd Just Transition & Good Jobs for Alberta

Chateau Lacombe Hotel | Edmonton, AB | October 22nd & 23rd | FREE

Transitioning to a low carbon economy is not a simple task. As Canada moves from fossil fuels to lower carbon industries we must ensure just transitions for workers and communities are prioritized and not forgotten. Those in the fossil fuel industry are going to be the hardest hit during the transition to a low carbon economy, however almost every economic sector will be impacted. There is a clear a need for action - primarily by government, but also involving employers, workers and their representatives, and communities, in Alberta and across all of Canada.

A just transition means helping those whose livelihoods are vulnerable to the policies and actions that are necessary to address climate change and pollution.

To ensure just transitions, an engaged movement of communities, workers, and allies are required. Working together with industry and government this movement can identify those who are vulnerable and address inequities while collectively planning for the changes ahead to ensure no one is left behind.
