TASC is committed to tackling climate change in a way that protects the rights and livelihoods of workers.
Since 2018, TASC has been applying its expertise in inequality and democratic sustainability to the issue of advancing climate justice and realising a Just Transition. This body of work has grown quickly and is already influencing policy development in Ireland and Europe. TASC seeks to tackle existing inequalities through the co-creation of climate solutions, and contribute to positive social change in Ireland and the EU through research and public outreach.
TASC’s climate justice research aims to ensure that communities across Ireland benefit from climate action.
Based on years of research, in November 2020, TASC published The Peoples Transition—a model that views climate action as an enabler of local development, gives people and communities ownership of the transition to zero carbon societies and enhances public support for a Just Transition. With social inclusion at its heart, it advocates for a healthy environment for all and ensures nobody in the community is left behind.
