Presented by Vancouver Economic Commission and the University of British Columbia

Climate change is one of the most significant economic development challenges facing leaders today. As climate change continues to pose physical and transition risks to our economies, all leaders will need to find ways to ensure that workers, businesses, and communities will be protected and supported. Most importantly, the transition to a decarbonized economy will need to recognize how the current economic system has supported many forms of marginalization, particularly for Indigenous peoples, persons of colour, women, disabled people, low-income families, and many other equity-seeking groups.

This session will explore the concept of a just transition and how other approaches (e.g., economic justice, diversity, and inclusion work, etc.) must be integrated to ensure that the future economy is one that is green and leaves no one behind. It will also explore how just transition is a cross cutting theme amongst many of the SDGs.
