Blue Green Canada’s Christine Jones to Moderate Energy Transition Panel

The Energy Transition: Empowering Climate Justice and Action Panel at 2023 Progress Summit

Thursday’s panel discussion will interrogate a progressive position on the energy transition and what needs to be considered with work already underway to reduce emissions, what impacts this could have, and how labour and environmental movements have come together. What more could be done by ENGOs and Labour to both meet current needs and what to prepare for looking forward to 2030 and 2050 horizons?

Watch the panel March 9 at 4:45 PM ET on the Broadbent Institute’s youtube livestream
