A new narrative for a just transition?

In order to give you access to our events, FEPS processes your personal data together with any other organiser of this event mentioned in the description of the event and in accordance with 'FEPS’ data protection policy.

Against the backdrop of the cost-of-living crisis and farmers’ protests, the European Green Deal is increasingly facing a backlash and the social costs of the green transition are being exploited by conservative and far-right forces to slow down, if not halt, the green transition. The negative narrative surrounding a just transition needs to be strongly countered with positive messages that outline the benefits of climate action for the well-being and living conditions of people in Europe and beyond. 

Addressing this open question, FEPS and SOLIDAR commissioned a Policy Study to examine and outline the framework for a positive Just Transition narrative, emphasizing some of the socio-economic benefits of the Just Transition in people’s lives. The event will start with the presentation of this document, followed by a reply by an external expert and conclude with a discussion about the real- life implications of this re-framing. The final goal will be to present the results of the research and to create a network for an ongoing debate along this positive framing of the Just Transition. 

This event is invite-only. For more information, please contact luis.saez@feps-europe.eu
