The International Labour Organization is paving the way forward. In 2015, the ILO introduced a number of guidelines for the just transition, with a special emphasis on the active engagement of the world of work.
The guidelines aim at helping countries at all levels of the transition, as both a practical tool and as a policy framework. Therefore, they offer advisement for both governments and social partners.
Workers are both highly affected by, and hold the knowledge and competence to affect the just transition.
While we need international initiatives to join our efforts in reaching our common goal, we must not forget the resources that are right in front of us.
Through worker involvement and sharing the good examples of what works in practice, we can inspire each other, become wiser together, and speed up the just, green transition.
