Just Transitions in Australia: Prospects for just low-carbon energy, home, and mobility futures

03/10/2022 07:00 pm 03/10/2022 08:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Just Transitions in Australia: Prospects for just low-carbon energy, home, and mobility futures

Presented by the Monash Energy Institute and Royal Holloway University of London

Join us in a series of three webinars to hear and discuss the main findings of an international research collaboration on just transitions to low carbon lives in Australia across energy, mobilities, the home, work and technology.

Host: Sarah Pink, Monash Emerging Technologies Research Lab

Researcher: Paris Hadfield, Monash Energy Institute

Panelists: Lynne Gallagher,  Energy Consumers Australia

Kellie Caught, Australian Council of Social Services (ACOSS)

Prof Tim Schwanen, University of Oxford


Just Transitions in Australia: Prospects for just low-carbon energy, home, and mobility futures

The second in our series on Just Transitions in Australia, this webinar explores the changes that would be needed  across overlapping domains of energy, home, and mobility to  achieve a socially just transition to decarbonisation. A narrow focus on the technological substitution of fossil fuels for electric and renewable alternatives undermines the real need to reimagine energy, housing and mobility systems and technologies. Attention to accessibility, participation, and the fair distribution of costs and benefits highlights the value of local collective action and improved public services.

What steps do we need to take to find a viable and just way forward? What can be learned from existing decarbonisation efforts across government, civil society, the private sector and everyday life realities. The panel will discuss these questions and reflect on emerging pathways for just energy, home, and mobility futures in Australia and beyond.

This research project is supported/funded by the British Academy’s Just Transition to Decarbonisation in the Asia-Pacific Programme
