As the furlough scheme comes to a close, the government’s new Job Support Scheme offers little to prevent the looming unemployment crisis. At the same time, the climate emergency becomes more urgent. It is time for the government to act boldly and invest directly in green projects that will create hundreds of thousands of jobs whilst reshaping the UK economy for a sustainable, low carbon future.
What role should the government play in tackling the economic and climate crises? What opportunities are there for priority, job-creating green investments? How can we ensure that a green transition is a just one, and that workers and communities have their voices heard and receive the support they need?
Join our New Economics Briefing to explore what a recovery plan for coronavirus could look like. Register here for the event, and please do send in any questions for the speakers in advance!
