Climate justice and a just transition recognizes that the climate crisis cannot be addressed without considering the economic and social crises we face, such that the fight for economic equality and anti-racism are intertwined with a sustainable future.While the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted discussions about a just transition away from high-carbon jobs, it also highlights the essential work of existing low-carbon jobs—from farm workers and grocery workers, to transit workers and care workers. The movement for decent work that has expanded through the pandemic—for status, higher wages and paid sick days—is essential for a just transition.
