Working Through A
As the APEC region shifts to cleaner energy sources, this process of transition affects everyone - through energy prices, shifting job markets, and the transition's impact not just on economic growth but on families from all walks of life. New forms of collaboration from the bottom up will be necessary to ensure a sustainable and inclusive transition for all.
Digital tools can play a crucial role in supporting reskilling and retraining efforts for a just energy transition. By tracking skills demand issues, these tools help identify training needs and gaps, while also facilitating the actual process of retraining, enabling efficient and targeted skill development to meet the demands of green jobs.
Policy dialogue on the issue of energy transition can sometimes organize coordinated action in ways that do not fully consider the needs and perspectives of all stakeholders, particularly those who are marginalized and excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives. The 2023 APEC Multistakeholder Forum is including diverse voices from across the region to examine how APEC can plan for an energy transition that ensures all economic stakeholders are accounted for.
Join us in San Francisco!
Access to green jobs and the ability to maintain meaningful work are pivotal to the success of a just energy transition.
Forum participants will work collaboratively to interrogate the significant and complex impact of a global shift to Net Zero on local communities - particularly on stakeholders and local economies which are heavily dependent on carbon-intensive industry.
Dialogue will center around how this process will play out locally: for workers and impacted communities, for women, indigenous groups, and for young people.
Please contact us if you are interested in participating.
Organized in partnership with the APEC Secretariat, World Affairs, and the Commonwealth Club of California, the APEC Multistakeholder Forum will bring together over 150 leaders from regional civil society organizations, the private sector, indigenous, youth, labor, and women’s groups from across APEC to participate in a three-and-a-half-day consultation on the sidelines of APEC Economic Leaders Week.
