TASC is committed to tackling climate change in a way that protects the rights and livelihoods of workers.
Our work in this area concentrates in particular on supporting people-centred climate action. Our current work includes two reports on community-based sustainable development in rural areas and the development of two local climate action assemblies to be piloted in an urban and a rural area. The aim of the latter is to develop local climate justice strategies that recognise how jobs and lifestyles are going to change in the area because of climate change and likewise, elaborate a response. They will involve stakeholders in business, labour, community organisations, and politics. A third project, in partnership with FEPS and the Fabian Society in the UK, entails conducting a survey on attitudes toward climate action and working with groups in other EU countries on how to advance community-based sustainable development.
