Climate change and the environment
#TheFutureIsYours Leading the way for a more sustainable future
The EU should provide for a strong and inclusive governance approach where workers and trade unions are involved in the design and implementation of adaptation policies at all levels. The EU strategy to deal with climate change should include concrete policy measures that maintain jobs and protect workers’ health and safety as well as active labour market policies and reskilling and trainings to prevent job losses. Emergency workers and social protection mechanisms will be key to deal with future crises and increase the resilience of our societies. Reforms must also allow the EU to build an effective “open strategic autonomy” to strengthen its industrial value chains.
The Future of the EU post-COP26
25 November 2021
17:00 - 18:00
This Conference on the Future of Europe will deal with the discussions and opinions of EU citizens on the direction of the EU following the commitments made at COP26. The emphasis is on the input of the participants and what their preferences and concerns are. The event will take place in University College Dublin (UCD) in Dublin, Ireland. The event is being organised by the UCD Politics and International Relations Society, it will be introduced by Senator Alice Mary Higgins who is the Leader of the Civil Engagement Group in Seanad Eireann. The event will then be chaired and overseen by a staff member from UCD's School of Politics and International Relations, who will be assisted by a head moderator from the society. The event will take the form of an interactive workshop, with participants organised into several groups, each overseen by a sub-moderator. Participants will be guided by moderators into collaborating with each other so as to identify their areas of interest and propose their ideas. It will be ensured that the emphasis of the event is getting everyone's input equally, and encouraging participants to collaborate together in order to finalise a core policy area of interest and create a subsequent proposal.
