Just Transition at the Trades Club


What is a Just Transition?

Come find out @ the last Climate Chaos Kitchen of the year!

Speakers from Manchester No Borders and Treesponsibility.

Trades Club, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge.

7pm-8pm delicious veggie roast £4

8pm-9.30pm speakers and discussion

The evidence is overwhelming: climate change will change all our lives dramatically. But will the harmful effects be shared equally? Climate chaos is a social justice issue because it is already killing people. It impacts hardest upon the poorest and most vulnerable, both nationally and globally, the people who are the least responsible for causing the problems.

It's up to us to bring about a Just Transition away from a fossil fuel economy. Co-operation between workers, environmentalists and communities is essential - how can we make the changes required fair and not cost workers or communities their health and well being?

Climate Chaos Kitchen is pleased to welcome – alongside the usual delicious veggie roast dinner – our guest speakers from No Borders Manchester, and Penny from Treesponsibility.

They will be talking about just transition, what it is, why it matters and how it relates to climate change.

Followed by lively discussions.

Come to the last climate chaos kitchen of the year!
