Climate change is a systemic issue that cannot be addressed by siloed thinking and policymaking.

The transition to a political, social and economic model needs a holistic understanding to address the planetary emergencies and to implement the commitments of the European Climate Law. By holistic, we mean a theoretical ground aware of interdependencies between different policy fields.

Transforming societies and economies while respecting sustainability principles means mainstreaming environmental concerns whenever we design policies for all other areas. At the same time, like the effects of climate change, also environmental policies can affect different areas, such as gender and health.

This workshop foregrounded and disentangled these interlinkages by bringing together research and experts from different disciplinary backgrounds.

Progressive policymakers and stakeholders who want to adopt holistic, comprehensive and environmentally sustainable policies that can remedy rather than exacerbate existing inequalities should start by reflecting on how these policies can integrate the concepts of climate justice, gender mainstreaming, and health with an inclusive and transformative digitalisation.
