justtransition - General Estates

Why hold the General Estates for a Just Transition?

"There is a social consensus on the urgent need to recognise the climate crisis and the need to change course. Now is the time to rally as many people as possible around the path we need to take to meet the challenges of this century. This transformation will only be successful if it is understood, through the democratisation of public debate, but also if it is perceived as legitimate and fair in the efforts it requires, as well as in the effects it causes. 

That is why we have resolutely chosen a just transition.

The aim of the General Estates and the conference is to organise this collective, democratic deliberation on the options for rallying around a desirable future, both socially and ecologically."
