In The Climate Economy, we aim to “thrive authentically” by living our purpose and earning a living without destroying the environment and our fellow humans. This requires some new ways of thinking about business models and lifestyles, and nudging ourselves into new directions. The Climate Equity “Skills” category includes the following subcategories:
- Fossil Fuel Workers and Communities
- Frontline Communities
- African Americans
- Indigenous People
- Racial and Climate Justice
- Systemic Racism

#JustTransitions - what does it mean as this depends on who's talking .. a politician, govt, business, labour union .. & on how "influential" the politician, govt, business, & labour union is? As expected the views of the poor ordinary majority are of no consequence.
Investment in clean energy rising to $4 trillion annually in 9 years is beyond the thinking of ordinary people in Africa (& in other under-developed countries) .. it also means they'll continue to be left out of any meaningful conversations on #JustTransitions. #IEAreport
