The transition to environmental sustainability will have adverse employment and social impacts if poorly managed. Social protection measures such as social care, employment services, training, cash, and in-kind payment have a long track record of helping workers and communities affected by transitions to adjust to a new economic and social context.
Objectives of the course
- understanding the role of social protection measures played during periods of transition (e.g. green transition, digital transition, etc.);
- identifying social protection measures that strengthen resilience during transitions, with a specific focus on green transition;
- advocating for social protection measures during green transition.
- TU officers and representatives responsible for social protection and health and safety issues;
- TU officers and representatives responsible for environment, energy, climate change and sustainability;
- TU representatives at the company and sectoral level.
