We face a climate crisis and an economic crisis in Britain and across the world. We have people who need jobs and urgent work that needs to be done to shift to a low-carbon economy. The Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union group has led the UK campaign for a million climate jobs, linking to similar campaigns in other countries.
Just published, this new report sets out the latest evidence and new understanding on the transformation to a low-carbon economy. It can be downloaded here or hard copies purchased for £2.50 (or £15 for 10). Order online.
A DVD is available with this video in higher resolution along with a longer (33 min) version with more technical detail. This can be purchased for £6 inc. P&P from Reel News.
On Saturday 12 May 2012, the Climate Jobs Caravan tour of Britain started, with two caravans setting off simultaneously from London and Edinburgh. Based on the Million Climate Jobs report, produced with the assistance of the CWU, PCS, TSSA & UCU trade unions, the Caravan highlighted how creating climate jobs can help us tackle the twin crises of the economy and climate change. Read about the events in all the different towns and cities we visited here.
