How to strengthen the collective power of civil society, trade unions and politics in order to achieve a just and democratic green transition for the Global South?
Learning from alliances and movements in the Philippines and South Africa, the Olof Palme International Center’s publication “A Just Transition for the Global South” provides elements to answer this fundamental question.
“The international trade union movement has called for a ‘Just Transition’ towards a fossil-free, socially, economically and environmentally sustainable world. The switch to a climate-friendly economy must be fair to workers and all vulnerable people”, said Anna Sundström, Secretary General of the Olof Palme International Center and SOLIDAR International Cooperation Forum Co-Chair.
The book was launched in the framework of the Stockholm+50 event at a workshop jointly organised by the Olof Palme International Center and SOLIDAR.
*The publication has been produced with the assistance of the European Union (Organising International SOLIDARity program). The content of this publication is the sole responsibility of SOLIDAR and the Palme Center and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union.
