New EEB reports: “Why energy justice” and “reimagining work”

By EEB – European Environmental Bureau

The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) economic transition team published, printed and presented two reflection papers with a long shelf life and detailed policy advice. One is on the lessons yet to be learned from the energy crisis, and the other is on reimagining work. The so-called dichotomy between “green” and “social” is a false one. The EEB believes that the needed changes in how we deal with our environment will be just and social or not work at all.

“Why energy justice? Towards a new economic and energy framework in Europe” takes a hard look at energy poverty, energy inflation, excess profits, the disruptive concentration of capital in the energy system, ownership of energy and how to evolve from first aid stop-gap measures to long-term systemic solutions. The reportop-ed in Social EuropeTwitter thread.

“Reimagining work for a just transition” has a holistic vision of the just transition and builds up arguments for a Working Time Reduction and a Job Guarantee. It then takes this vision to investigate the Just Transition Fund, the European Social Fund Plus, the REPowerEu Plan, The Revision of the Renewable Energy Directive and the Farm to Fork Strategy. The reportarticleTwitter thread.
