Just Transition

Just Transition

The Just Transition is the idea that justice and equality must form an integral part of the transition away form a fossil fuel driven economy towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient and more sustainable society. It says that workers and working-class communities should not pay the price for climate action in the form of job losses and permanently deprived living standards, but instead their lives will be positively transformed as we take radical steps to clean up our economy.

Trademark is engaged in two partnership programmes promoting a Just Transition

PCAN

The Place-based Climate Action Network (PCAN) is a tri-city project involving a range of decision-makers, researchers and communities of interest in Belfast, Leeds and Edinburgh. The project has the central aim of translating climate policy into action ‘on the ground’ to bring about transformative change.

As part of the PCAN project, Queen’s University and Belfast City Council launched the Belfast Climate Commission on 10 January 2020, the stated purpose of which is to drive place-based climate action in order that Belfast plays its part in achieving the UK Government’s target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

Trademark sits on a number of working groups attached to the Belfast Climate Commission. We have also joined forces with Belfast City Council in an outreach and engagement programme to build support for the Just Transition among trade unions, communities, local government, political parties and policy-makers across the city and the north of Ireland. This involves a process of one-to-one stakeholder engagement and a popular education programme designed to bring the ideas behind the Just Transition into working-class communities.

The Just Transition
in Ireland

In parallel with the PCAN project, Trademark’s has forged a partnership with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and Mandate Trade Union to undertake a parallel outreach and engagement programme across the south of Ireland.
Working in collaboration with trade unions, civil society and the political left, we have embarked upon an education campaign designed to popularise the Just Transition in the employment sectors and communities which stand to be most affected by the shift away from carbon-intensive activities, and encourage a positive feedback loop of critical engagement with associated policy agendas. Ultimately, we hope that this campaign will help to promote effective red-green alliances across the island and create an impetus for transformative change from below.
