Over three days from Tuesday 27th October to Thursday 29th October, a diverse mix of experts, academics, councils and policy makers contributed to the 28th EEAC Annual Conference.
Ireland and the European Union are committed to the transformation to a sustainable, inclusive, thriving net zero economy and society. This conference focused on how the principles of justice, fairness, equality and equity of a just transition can act as a lever and guide to shape policies and practices to deliver the transformation. NESC’s recent work on just transition and employment vulnerability was a valuable input to the days.
What was discussed?
The conference provided a forum for Irish and European colleagues to share perspectives, experiences and practices and develop a common understanding and concrete strategies for making progress. The conference shed light on how other countries are managing the transition process, with special attention paid to managing the impacts of climate policy that might disproportionately impact specific groups in society.
A conference outcome document will be provided in due time. Stay tuned
