Hey, you, got something to say?

So, you want better jobs, green jobs, decent jobs and you’ve got a good idea how to get them? Then tell us about it. The Global Union Research Network (GURN) has launching a call for papers, jointly with the global union confederation ITUC. The network wants to receive papers on four themes:

  • Social consequences of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures;
  • “Just Transition” towards a low carbon economy;
  • Investment in decent green jobs; and
  • Change in production patterns.

Contributions can be in English, French or Spanish, and those whose papers are accepted will be invited to a workshop, ‘Climate change impact on employment and the labour market – responses to the challenges’ to be held 25-26 February 2010 in Brussels.  If you want to make a submission, make sure you tell GURN before the end of this week.
