The need for a Just Transition emerged from the workers’ movement in the 1980s. Principles developed during these early Just Transition struggles have since then taken on different meaning and forms. In a contemporary moment tormented by climate and nature crises, the concept of Just Transition is claimed by diverse actors and institutions, from climate movements to neoliberal and business interests. Initiatives lead by workers for advancing on-the-ground transformative actions is a pressing reminder that Just Transition remains a field of struggle where groups at the frontline of the crisis have a crucial role in the emergence of concrete paths for a liveable and just future.
The WAGE project and the Bridge to the Future alliance, in collaboration with the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, are opening an invitation to a film screening focused on the experience of oil workers for a Just Transition followed by a public conversation. A panel of participants will provide further remarks opening the scope of the common exchange.
