Welcome to W3 – Work in a Warming World @ York University

ACW-W3 International Panel, November 2015

After Paris: Politics, Climate Change and Labour

Canada’s surprise election of a majority government promising to return Canada to the struggle to slow global warming puts the federal government front and centre in climate policy, for the first time in years. Elsewhere, legal activism in the Netherlands and Pakistan has forced states to live up to their responsibility to protect their population from the devastation of global warming. Labour-environmental alliances are linking environment and labour law, and crafting collective bargaining ways to reduce GHGs at work. With the Paris talks around the corner, this is a rare moment for strategic creativity.

Join us for an international panel discussion featuring Canadian and European experts on the law and politics of climate change and the emerging role for labour.
