Just TransitionUpdated: November 14, 2022
How do we tackle the climate crisis without neglecting people whose livelihoods depend on polluting industries? And what happens when they’re left behind?
A Just Transition is about transforming the economy in ways that are fair for everyone - whether you mine coal or crypto, whether you work in the city or on a plantation, whether you’re an activist or an industrialist.
In Series 1 of this podcast from Context, join host Iman Amrani and our journalists in Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Iceland, India and the United States to hear extraordinary stories about how the Just Transition is playing out across the globe.
