How it Works: Workers and Work in Canadian and Global Just Transitions COP28 Canada Pavilion event by Globe Series

Dec. 1, 2023 7:30pm United Arab Emirates panel - Invitation only

Binnu Jeyakumar, advisor to the Pembina Institute's electricity program, will be part of the How it Works: Workers and Work in Canadian and Global Just Transitions panel at the COP28 Canada Pavilion. This event will cover workers and work through global just transitions from a three hundred and sixty degree perspective, starting with a discussion between senior government ministers about government experiences working with unions to shift key economic sectors; an innovative and unique worker focused blueprint of policies based on best practices, worker opinions and economic modelling built with Canadian workers and international expertise and best practices which we hope will inspire similar projects elsewhere; and Canadian and international opinions on the Just Transition Work Programme and its potential impacts in Canada and globally.
