Join the Budget Justice Coalition (BJC) on Thursday, 13 April 2023 at 12PM as they host a webinar on Climate Change and the Financing of the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JET-P) with Andile Zulu, AIDC Energy Democracy Officer as a guest speaker. Join the discussion here.
The dire issue of climate change cannot be ignored, and so the webinar will give great focus on the need for a Just Transition towards renewable energy, and the importance of resisting the unjust and impractical neoliberal philosophy that has guided government management of Eskom.
The discussion will show how fixing Eskom is critical if we are to deal with immediate energy needs, as part of a longer-term strategy to put South Africa on a path of decarbonisation.
The webinar will be followed by a general meeting.
The BJC is a voluntary coalition of civil society organisations that does budget advocacy to mobilise the power of the people to ensure that the state advances social, economic and environmental justice that meets people’s rights, quality of life and dignity in a developmental, equitable and redistributive way.
