The world needs concrete results in the fight against climate change in Durban. Sustainlabour also wants to take advantage of the opportunity to call for renewed action toward Rio + 20. We need conferences and summits that pull us out of the lack of international cooperation and perplexity, for this, one of the events we will organize will be on the mobilization toward Rio.
“Decisions about environmental issues cannot only be a thing for companies. From the trade union we want to participate in the discussions and we want the Committee on occupational health and environment to serve us in this sense”.
On December 7th, trade unions from the North and the South will share and discuss on their experiences and perspectives around climate change in a day full of activities at the WoW, the World of Work Pavilion. The World of Work pavilion is a space for debate and exchange and, above all, for sharing a clear message from the trade union movement to show that workers are committed and prepared to face the challenges, and that they have already began working on it.
The decision was adopted in response to EU Commission consultation on unconventional fossil fuels in Europe
