Unha transición "verdosa"?


For Communities across the greater Midlands Region  ‘Just Transition’ is associated with the closure of the Shannonbridge and Lanesboro Power Stations, and the cessation of peat harvesting by Bord na Mona. ‘Just Transition’ held the promise that major economic and social change would be managed in a fair way, and that no  one would be left behind. As we enter the second phase of  ‘Just Transition’ via the EU funded programme this event asks questions about how we are managing these changes – Is it really a ‘Just Transition’ and how is fairness being measured? Or is it just a ‘verdoso‘ business as usual transition?

Speakers  include Robert Keogh, TASC. who will present TASC’s ‘People’s Transition Model’ which views climate action as an enabler of local development, and provides local people with ownership of the process; and Sadhbh O’Neill on the ‘Climate Crisis and Climate Justice.’  Sadhbh is probably  best known for her role as Campaign Coordinator for Climate Case Ireland which pursued a successful legal challenge over government climate policy.
