The European Chair for Sustainable Development and Climate Transition at Sciences Po in Paris is organising a conference “Perspectives on Just Transition” on Wednesday 8 February 5 to 7 pm at Sciences Po Paris (Amphitheater Chapsal).
The debate will focus on the various aspects of the “just transition” that the European Green Deal and indeed any transition towards a climate-neutral economy bring about.
Speakers will highlight the multiple levels and stakes that a just transition needs to address. Their contributions will be spanning the field from the European and international perspective to sectorial policies, implementing change in the European car industry and tackling energy poverty.
Speakers will be Frank SIEBERN-THOMAS, European Commission, Head of Unit for “Fair Green and Digital Transitions, Research”, Prof. Phoebe KOUNDOURI, UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), Sanna MARKKANEN, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and Sarah MEWES, Next Economy Lab.
The debate will be introduced by PSIA Dean Arancha González Laya and moderated by Prof. Marc Ringel, Chairholder of the European Chair for Sustainable Development and Climate Transition at Sciences Po.
