At the end of February, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a report entitled 'Climate Change 2022: impacts, adaptation and vulnerabilities'. This report provides 'strong scientific proof of the close interconnection between climate change, environmental degradation and the structural injustices and inequalities that pervade our societies' (Solidar.org).
More precisely, climate change affects more severely and disproportionally the most vulnerable people. In these circumstances, this training aims to answer the following question: how can we ensure that climate change adaptation policies are not pursued to the detriment of the most vulnerable workers?
- Analysing the impact of climate change adaptation policies on the most vulnerable workers, focusing on three sectors (agriculture, construction, mining) and energy-intensive industries.
- Critically assessing climate change adaptation policies in these sectors and industries.
- Developing strategies that guarantee social justice in climate adaptation policies.
- TU officers and representatives who are or may be responsible for the environment, energy, climate change, and sustainability.
- TU representatives at the company and sectoral level who are involved in health and safety and environmental policies.
