About Just Transformations
Many regions and people across Europe still rely on economies that are incompatible with tackling climate change. These can be coal-producing regions or regions with polluting-heavy industries. People and economies engaged in these sectors are therefore highly vulnerable during the transition to a decarbonised future.
Climate, social, economic and democratic justice as well as inclusivity are vital to the success of rapid structural change. Our ambition is to build a movement to prove that such just transformations are indeed possible across Europe to achieve democratic and inclusive transformations of whole regions. The movement will put the voices of citizens, workers and young people at the core of regional economic transformation.
Early partners include the regional governments of Mondragon in Spain, Emilia Romagna in Italy and Silesia in Poland. We are also currently working with the province of Gipuzkoa in Spain as a challenge owner and are involved in the Post Coal Future Lab, a project working on just transformations of coal regions in RIS countries.
