A Feminist European Green Deal - Towards an ecological and gender just transition

Veranstaltungsnummer: 258465

The European Green Deal is the European Union’s most ambitious and comprehensive climate program to date. It shows a path toward decarbonization and climate neutrality to keep the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement alive and limit global warming to 1,5 °C. The concept of a just transition, the promise that no one shall be left behind along this path, is rightly at the heart of the European Green Deal.
But not everyone is impacted equally by the climate crisis and climate policies. Often times, women and men are affected in very different ways. Yet thus far the European Green Deal has been gender-blind. This is problematic because such measures run the risk of perpetuating or even exacerbating gender-based inequalities. The European Green Deal’s just transition needs to address more broadly how people are impacted differently by the climate crisis to bring about transformative change.
That is why Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Women Engage for a Common Future and the European Environmental Bureau invite you to this online launch of our policy paper that examines the climate policy measures of the European Green Deal from a feminist perspective. It focusses on solutions in the sectors with the highest emissions: mobility, energy and agriculture and makes policy recommendations for a gender-just and transformative implementation of the European Green Deal.
