Local movements and community organizations are key players in the transition to low-carbon societies. A growing number of frontline groups is mobilizing just transition language and framings to support their fight against racial, gender and social injustices within their communities. This session of our Just Transistion Research Collaborative webinar series will bring together researchers and grassroots activists to discuss the role of community-based efforts in promoting and implementing just transitions and bringing about transformative change at the national and international levels.
