  • Climate Crisis
  • Sustainability as Strategy

An increasing number of Canadian and international actors are reaffirming their commitment to meeting the Paris Agreement, focusing on an inclusive approach to climate action and the economy. Join us in a working dialogue as we bring together global leaders in labour force transitions to share their experiences and address the challenging questions around how we continue to build inclusivity into climate action.

  • What does the just transition mean? Where did it originate?
  • What are the common features of just transition programs around the world? What are best practices and prevailing mistakes?
  • Do new approaches need to be integrated into these programs?
  • How are the roles of industry, government and civil society changing with the evolving landscape?
