Do we have a new understanding of the ‘Just Transition’ – Ensuring prosperity in the race to Net Zero

About this Event

The University of Strathclyde Centre for Energy Policy is celebrating a birthday. It is 5 years since the Centre began to work on research which would grow to be relied upon for thoughtful, objective information on socio-economic implications of energy policy options considered by Scottish and UK Governments.

With new ambitious emission reduction targets announced a year ago the Centre will host a webinar to mark the birthday and our contribution to the public policy debate on energy and climate issues until now and going forward.

While the Coronavirus pandemic has caused the COP conference to be delayed until mid 2021, the online event will share and invite open discussion on the Centre’s 5 key messages that are ultimately aimed at informing the COP, but which we believe are relevant and important at considering the ‘Just Transition’ in a range of wider public policy contexts (including the current challenge of economic recovery).

The event will be opened by the Chair of the Centre’s Advisory Group, former energy Minister Brian Wilson, followed by an address by the Centre’s Director Professor Karen Turner. We will then have an open Q & A followed by an informal online networking session.
