President gives keynote address at conference on Just Transition

President Higgins will deliver the keynote address at the annual conference of the European network of advisory councils on environment and sustainable development (EEAC Network), hosted by the Irish National Economic and Social Council, NESC.

Entitled ‘Delivering a Just Transition for All: Principles, Policies and Practice’, the conference will focus on how principles of justice, fairness, equality and equity can shape policies and practices to deliver a just transition to sustainable production, away from a reliance on fossil fuels.

 

Throughout his terms in office, President Higgins has underlined the grave implications of the impending climate crisis, warning that the climate crisis is “moving so much faster than the efforts we are expending or enlisting to address it” (quote from his speech at the UN General Assembly).
