At the tail end of the hottest year on record, COP28 produced the first global stocktake. Despite persistent warnings from scientists for decades, the global stocktake was the first formal acknowledgement that fossil fuels are the cause of global warming.

In the months following COP28, the Common Futures Conversations community sought to continue this conversation by collaborating across Africa and Europe to discuss the just green transition: what it means, who it impacts and what it entails.

In this event, the Common Futures Conversations community is joined by Fadhel Kaboub, President of the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity and co-author of the recent report, “Just Transition: A Climate, Energy and Development Vision for Africa” to discuss the just green transition.

Key questions include

  • How can young people help facilitate the just green transition?
  • What are the roles of different levels of government in facilitating the just green transition?
  • How can Africa and Europe work together to achieve the just green transition?
