CLIMATE AND EMPLOYMENT PROOF OUR WORK 2022: Take part in the global conversation about our future

We are in a race against time to respond to climate change, which left unchecked threatens everyone and will leave whole regions uninhabitable. Extreme weather events with lasting devastation are already destroying jobs and livelihoods.

We know that jobs and employment are serious concerns for people, that’s why we need to have the conversation about both climate and employment.

On June 22, take part in the biggest global conversation about our future: join the Global Day of Action to Climate and Employment Proof our Work. #CEPOW22

Workers around the world will invite their employers to discuss plans for resilience and sustainable business —plans which must include safety, jobs, emissions and a secure pathway for the future.

Let’s work together and design a future with secure jobs, sustainable economies, and a safe and healthy living planet.
