Not Just a Green Transition – Examining the path towards a socially just green transition in the Nordic Region (short name: NJUST) contributes to a just transition towards a climate neutral Nordic Region. The researchers explore perceptions among those experiencing the change first-hand and focus on how to best support the Nordic people and especially vulnerable groups, i.e.primarly unemployed and those at risk of unemployment as well as older people, children and persons with disabilities.
The starting point will be to create a knowledge base where a literature review, policy review and analyses of spatial and socio-economic effects of green transition policies will be conducted. The project also aims to perform surveys and sentiment analyses to explore how people experience the ongoing green transition on an individual level. Based on the knowledge base, a policy proposal toolbox will be created and disseminated across the Nordic countries and self-governing regions. The toolbox shall contain policies and measures to reduce the negative spatial and social impacts of the green transition.
Not Just A Green Transition – Examining the path towards a socially just green transition in the Nordic Region is a cross-sectoral project initiated and financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers. Nordregio is responsible for implementing the project, while it is led by a steering group composed of appointed representatives from the committees of senior officials connected to the Nordic Ministerial Councils. The Nordic Welfare Center (NVC) is a partner in the project and will also contribute with special knowledge on vulnerable groups.
