IFJ Voice - Editorial: Towards a Just Climate Transition 

IFJ staff and affiliates joined tens of millions of students, workers and climate activists demonstrating in defence of the planet during the week of action from 20 -27 September. In addition to that, the IFJ was keen to remind its affiliates that media coverage of environmental issues needs to go well beyond popular demonstrations, and that journalists have a key role to play in telling the truth about climate change.

As a global federation of trade unions, we must also remind world leaders that only climate justice can ensure a just transition and a sustainable future for all, without leaving anyone behind. We cannot rely on hypothetical promises to reduce emissions and protect the climate in a treaty that no one honours.
We need all governments around the world to adopt and comply with an appropriate action plan. Now.
