The international conference will bring together 40 labour unions, alongside key allies to work towards a comprehensive reclaiming of energy systems to public ownership and democratic control, and to reform and “de-marketize” existing public energy companies, in order to reverse current energy consumption and emission trends. The full programme is available here.

The event will follow a strategy meeting of union representatives hosted by TUED in New York City on September 26th and 27th.
