Across the planet, the world is browning, not greening. GHG emissions continue to grow and grow. The world of work is a major producer of GHGs. Can work, workers and their unions become leaders in the struggle to slow global warming?
The question is central to the future of decent work in the 21st century. But it also calls upon the labour movement to do things differently.
Join us for an evening of discussion with experts in the field.
