Topic 3. Labor in the Age of Climate Change

sketch_energyWe have less than a decade to launch a rapid and just energy transition. In order to win, we need the workers and the workers’ organizations fighting for climate and social justice at the same time. And this requires better dialogue and stronger alliances between climate justice groups and workers’ organizations.
