Renewable energy - A socially just and successful green transition

The green energy transition does not only rely on cleaner energy sources, but also on updating technologies and energy conservation in all sectors of society, transportation, industry and not the least in private homes and life. This is a costly endeavour. The fact that the gap between the haves and have nots only will increase is clear and present. Access to new technologies is costly, and as the “polluter pays”-principle is increasingly implemented, once affordable energy and technologies no longer are. This affects communities and families differently.

So, what actions can we make to ensure an inclusive green transition?

Join us for this Nordic Talks event, in Japan, which will be a dialogue between frontrunners in just green transition from the Nordics and Japan, to explore the issues around the theme and what we should do to achieve a healthy, just transition towards greener energy.

Event date and time: October 28th, 2021 17.00-18.30 (JST) / 10.00 - 11.30 (CEST)
