How does everyone get a stake in the transition?

We know that the green economic transition is necessary, urgent, and already underway. But we need to ensure that the new green economy improves the lives of ordinary people everywhere - and our meeting will focus on how we can help to make the economies of the future equitable, inclusive, and people-focused.

This year marks a milestone in our evolution as a network. With 7 country programmes now up and running around the world, our partner organisations will be sharing their stories from the frontlines of the green economic transition: evidence of real and positive improvements, with the potential to achieve scale across nations, and change lives.

Co-hosted with our South African partners, The African Centre and Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS), we will be taking stock of the global transition and planning our next steps together as the largest civil society movement for fair, green economies.

This year we also hold our meeting back to back with the UN-PAGE Ministerial meeting, on 6 – 7th September, South Africa. If you are interested in attending the PAGE Ministerial, please make sure you have registered for passes here.
