Join the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development, the Center for Environmental Justice, and the Global Labour University for this free webinar.

Is there a gap between labour and nature, or are workers and their communities engaging with nature to work towards environmental justice and a just transition? Drawing on examples from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe to respond to this crucial question, speakers analyse the challenges working people face when struggling for eco-social justice within a neoliberal, extractivist political economy. They shed light on conflicts between miners and communities affected by mining concerned about environmental conservation; they discuss how workers mobilize to protest against environmental crises, but also to fight regressive climate policies that put the burden of change on lower-income groups. Bringing together a wealth of experience presented in the Palgrave Handbook of Environmental Labour Studies, the series highlights how the developing field of environmental labour studies can help fuse eco-social research and practice.
