How can we achieve a fair green transition for all?

What is a just transition to a sustainable society, and what policies and measures should we implement to make it fair? How can we involve different societal groups? 

Join the discussion about justice in one of the most significant transformations of our time. In this webinar, the Not Just a Green Transition project (NJUST) invited researchers, policymakers, and experts to discuss what a just green transition entails and how climate policies address the human factor. 

In the webinar, we will discuss questions such as:

  • What is important to include in the toolbox? 
  • What policy measures are needed to make the transition fair?
  • How can you meet the needs of social groups and reduce potential unfair impact?
  • Are the conflict of aims to achieve this?

The project Not Just a Green Transition (NJUST) aims to provide knowledge and recommendations on how to engage all Nordic citizens in a green transition that transforms the Nordic Region into the most sustainable and integrated region in the world. With one year left of the research project, we are approaching the end deliverable: a policy proposal toolbox. The toolbox will contain information, policy proposals and measures to reduce the potentially negative spatial and social impacts of the green transition.   

This research project is a collaboration effort, and in this webinar we gather those involved to share knowledge and build on the insights the project has generated so far. Join in the conversation, we want to hear from you!
