Just Transition is a framework for a fair and sustainable shift to a regenerative economy through implementing real solutions to climate change that chart a path towards more democratic, ecologically rooted economies. The concept of Just Transition grew out of the environmental justice movements and worker movements over the last 30 years—the communities whose health and livelihood are directly impacted by the climate crisis. This workshop will deepen discussion around what Just Transition means when grounded in the leadership of Indigenous Peoples, food producers, fence-line communities, and frontline workers movements. Economic and energy transition transition itself must be just and equitable; redressing past harms and creating new relationships of power for the future through reparations. Just Transition describes both where we are going and how we get there. We will hear directly from organizers who are advancing real alternatives for both energy production and economic self-determination transforming the conditions that are pitting our livelihood against our health and our collective survival.

Do we need a Loss and Damage Fund? - Thinking out of the box for innovative and just finance tools for climate-induced loss and damage - Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Bread for the WorldENG
Climate change is no longer a future scenario. Its impacts are already visible and harming the most vulnerable people and communities. The Paris Agreement covers this challenge. Financial means and instruments that have been discussed so far do not seem to cover the full range of needs. By discussing the idea of initiating a Loss and Damage Fund this workshop will approach the field of loss and damage finance from a perspective of the most vulnerable communities and also by adding a perspective that applies a rights-based, gender-sensitive and justice approach. The workshop shall also provide a forum that explores other innovative instruments to raise required funds supporting the financial needs related to loss and damage.
The proposed event dives deep and puts forward out of the box proposals into a topic that the Paris Agreement acknowledges as important, but where negotiations have by far, failed to provide clear guidance and resolution.
