WHAT DOES A JUST TRANSITION LOOK LIKE IN A TIME OF PANDEMIC?
The Environmental Governance Lab invites you to join the panel discussion for the third webinar on just transition amidst the pandemic featuring our President! The pandemic has exposed the impact that everyday inequality has on vulnerable communities, and their limited capacities to respond to major shocks in terrifying detail. Our panelists will discuss how a just transition to a low carbon future can address these inequalities to make decarbonization a sustainable process that enhances justice, equity, and anti-racism. Panelists include:
- Donna Ashamock, Community Organizer and Steering Committee Member at Indigenous Climate Action.
- Nadége Compaoré, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto.
- John Cartwright, President of the Toronto & York Region Labour Council
Date: Tuesday, 24 November 2020
Time: 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This week would have been COP26: United Nations Climate Change Conference, but has been pushed back a year due to Covid-19. We can’t drop the ball. Any recovery must include a green transition: there is no vaccine for climate change.
