Are you interested in learning about the chances, and challenges for just energy transitions that Â´leave no one behindÂ´? This course examines the socioeconomic dimensions and distribution outcomes of sustainability transitions in theory and practice from a multi-disciplinary perspective. With a special focus on the Global South, employment and social reproduction, and on energy transitions in particular, the course aims to discuss ways in which green transitions can create sustainable development benefits for vulnerable and traditionally excluded communities and groups.
The course provides participants with a solid overview of the conceptual and political debates regarding inclusivity and fairness in energy transitions. Participants will also gain practical insights on ways to optimize the social and economic development impacts of green transition initiatives.
This online course is organized by the International Development Studies Group of the Human Geography and Planning Department at Utrecht UniversityÂ´s Faculty of Geoscience, with contributions from guest scholars, practitioners, and entrepreneurs. Additionally, participants will work on a group project.
