ABOUT - 2023 GLOBAL CLIMATE JOBS CONFERENCE 

We are living through a cost of living crisis and worsening housing, energy and climate crises. Billionaires and corporations are getting wealthier while working people cannot get by. Growing social despair risks driving people into the hands of right-wing extremists. Amidst these crises, there are opportunities for advancing progressive politics. We believe Climate Jobs & Ecological Unionism are paths out of this crisis.

The status quo is not providing real solutions to these crises. Left and progressive movements need to fill this vacuum and organize for radically progressive policies that widen its support and build social power.

From Green New Deals to Climate Jobs, many blueprints for just transitions and socioeconomic and ecological transformations have been put forward. But we are failing to build powerful social movements around these ideas while their labels are now being used to promote green capitalism.

As so, the Global Climate Jobs Network is hosting a conference from October 6th to 8th in the Netherlands.

At the 2023 Global Climate Jobs Conference, we will bring together everyone who wants to take part in the challenging but pressuring task of building social power to stop climate change. We want to move from policy discussions to action. We seek to set a conference for frank and ambitious discussions on working-class organizing, alliance and movement building and political strategy, towards Climate Jobs and Ecological Unionism.

We will host open and frank discussions about radically just policies, about the future of working class organizing, about alliance building between climate, labour and social movements, and about goals and political strategy and organizing. A conference based on the acknowledgment that without a radical restructuring of our economy we will fail to deliver a just transition and climate justice. A conference to build the social power that can stop climate change.
