Climate Crisis

The climate crisis is already destroying the livelihoods of workers across the world. Global transformation to a low carbon economy is more urgent now than ever. But this poses huge challenges for workers whose livelihoods risk being negatively impacted by the transition. But workers whose jobs are affected by the transition should not be left behind.

GLI undertakes research and development of education tools to support unions to take practical action at the local level, to ensure that workers have a voice in planning the transition, and to ensure the creation of green, decent and secure jobs.
