The publication ‘The People’s Transition: Community-led development for Climate Justice’ is the end result of a joint research, engagement and policy-modelling project undertaken by FEPS and TASC for over a year.
The People’s Transition develops a bottom-up, people-centred climate policy making approach called Community-led Sustainable Development (CLSD).
The work analyses the needs of communities who are transitioning at a significant rate, together with needs of the wider society and considers the political and socio-cultural contexts in which they stand.
Perhaps the greatest challenge facing European leaders over the coming decade will be to implement transformative climate action in such a way that it benefits from enduring public support and achieves its long-term objectives without strife, disruption or delay.
