Sign up for the TUC’s 2009 Climate Change Conference!

The next big event after the G20 March Putting People First is the TUC’s annual climate change conference on Monday 27 April, at Congress House, London. Green Growth is the theme of this year’s conference.

Register online here.

We’ve a keynote address from Bob Baugh, Executive Director of the AFL-CIO Industrial Council. The American labour movement campaigned hard for an Obama victory to rebuild the US economy. The Presidents' plans for economic recovery owes much to union calls for Green and Decent Jobs, which are now a key part of the President’s recovery programme.

Activities include a Green New Deal Panel of leading trade unionists, climate and energy experts. And we’ve keynote speeches from DECC Minister Mike O’Brien MP and Frances O’Grady.

Six workshops lay the ground for a green industrial transformation in the UK – debating green jobs, green skills, greening the workplace, green energy, how to ensure environmentally-friendly investment, and Copenhagen – what does a new climate deal mean for labour, and how can we make it happen?

2009 is a crucial year for the globe – economic recovery and climate change go hand in hand. Everything about a new climate deal affects trade unions, North and South, in terms of jobs, skills, investment and ensuring a Just Transition to a low carbon future.

So we hope that you will sign up for Green Growth – please email Emma Hendy for details, or register here.
