Putting the "Just" in Just Energy Transition

Time:
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Event Type:
Speaker
Organizer/Author:
Margaret Rossoff for No Coal in Oakland
Location Details:
California Nurses Association building at 155 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA 94612

Nick Mullins, a former coal miner and advocate for just transition, will address the divide between rural conservatism and urban liberalism and the jobs vs. environment debate based upon it. He considers the best and most important means of lessening this cultural disconnect lies within a just energy transition that provides immediate job alternatives to those who need them.


Using his own story and experiences, Mullins asks what a “just” transition truly means and seeks to help audiences understand the issues working-class communities face. By illustrating the need to rethink traditional environmental communication methods and work harder to establish common ground, he builds hope to achieve a sustainable future for generations to come.
