Plenary D: Climate change and the transition to a green economy: what does it mean for jobs?

Thursday 28 June 2018, 09:00-10:30, room: France - interpretation: EN/FR

Climate change and the resulting energy transition are making many jobs obsolete. But at the same time they are creating many new ‘green’ jobs. This transition is bringing about multiple challenges for employees in terms of working conditions, pay and representation. What impacts, what regulatory solutions exist or can be imagined? Climate change is interrelated with other megatrends. How should we think about the relationship between digitalisation and climate change: what are the drivers, how can we address the global scope of climate change, how global or local does the solution to climate change need to be? What are the links between climate change and demographic developments such as urbanisation, migration, water shortages?
