On 28th September 2019, Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (TUED) hosted union representatives and allies from around the world in New York during “Climate Week” for a one-day international conference on ‘The Green New Deal, Net-Zero Carbon, and The Crucial Role of Public Ownership.‘
The conference was framed around issues and concerns that have emerged around recent union struggles to defend and extend public ownership of energy, including:
- Reaching Net-Zero and the Crucial Role of Public Ownership
- Power, Class and “Just Transition”
- A Proposal for 2020 Mobilization
The full conference report is now available to read here.
