Event Details

IPPR is thrilled to invite you to attend an IPPR fringe event at COP26. The event will involve two workshops focussed on a just transition – the first will include just transition examples from around the world, the second will focus on community action and public engagement.

This will be a hybrid event, with both workshops taking place online and in person on Friday 12th November 2021, 9:00-10:15 and 10:30-11:45 respectively.

The link to attend online will be shared with you following registration.

The first workshop will involve discussion of just transition examples from around the world, including in countries most vulnerable to climate change impacts, particularly in the global south. It will share examples of success whilst championing a diverse range of voices from trade unions, civil society, businesses and government.

The second workshop will focus on public engagement and involvement in combatting the climate crisis in a fair way, including the role of community climate action domestically and globally. We will also share insights from IPPR’s ground-breaking Climate and Justice Panels conducted across four locations in the UK – Tees Valley and County Durham, South Wales Valleys, Thurrock and Aberdeenshire. The workshop will also include community groups from the UK and globally, who are taking action on climate and nature in their own local area.
