Overview of Position Paper on Just Transition Empowering Workers for Social and Ecological Justice

CoSET’s position paper underscores the urgent need for a paradigm shift towards a more equitable and sustainable economy, one that prioritizes the well-being of workers and the environment.

Highlighting the detrimental effects of conventional economic indicators like GDP, CoSET argues for a broader understanding of prosperity that encompasses factors such as livelihood security and human dignity. The concept of Just Transition emerges as a crucial framework for navigating the shift from unsustainable, fossil fuel-dependent economies to ones that are climate-resilient and socially just.

Central to CoSET’s advocacy is the recognition that workers should not bear the burden of this transition alone but should be supported and empowered to thrive in the changing economic landscape.

By placing workers at the forefront of the discourse, CoSET challenges the prevailing profit-driven agendas that often disregard workers’ rights and environmental concerns. The coalition emphasizes the importance of creating new opportunities in green industries while safeguarding against mass job losses or precarious employment, thereby fostering a labor market that is both just and inclusive.
