This event has been canclled

Labour has proved itself to be the only party capable of tackling the climate crisis, in recognising that class politics and climate politics are intrinsically linked. Our radical motion for a Green New Deal passed with overwhelming support at conference; including a target for the UK to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.

This is only possible with the support of Trade Unions, in order to ensure that the hundreds of thousands of workers employed in fossil fuel extractive industries are guaranteed a just transition into secure, unionised, green jobs.

Join us to discuss the just transition, Labour’s industrial strategy, and the role that Trade Unions will need to play in successfully implementing a Green New Deal.

This event is free but please do register to avoid disappointment.

Some exciting speakers TBA!
