Building worker power in the context of the climate crisis

Richards, J. (Participant)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference

Description

The way we produce energy has changed dramatically in recent decades.

The climate change emergency brings new challenges and new opportunities.

How will heating systems, still based on fossil fuels, be decarbonised? How will good jobs be won in the low-carbon supply chain which currently sees renewables work offshored to Indonesia? What is the role of public transport in tackling climate change?

With public ownership and nationalisation back on the agenda for the first time in a generation, what are the connected and conflicting priorities in Scotland for bringing strategically important assets back into public ownership?

How can workers organise effectively to take action around this agenda?
