Amsterdam Manifest for a Just Energy Transition

Climate change affects us all, including our children and grandchildren. It has an impact on our jobs, our homes, our natural environment, our mobility as well as our food. This is why everyone needs to be involved in halting climate change; the poor and the rich, private citizens and companies, from the Global North to the Global South.

We call for a Just Energy Transition, in which climate polluters pay the true price of pollution and the resulting revenues are used for making climate solutions available to everyone; in which each disappearing ‘fossil’ job is replaced with at least two decent ‘green’ jobs. And where local communities own climate solutions. A transition that empowers people is not only just, but is also a prerequisite to limit global warming to well below two degrees Celsius, stimulate clean, local economic development and, thus, halt climate-induced migration.
