FES Just Climate

In 2021 the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung launched a competence center for Climate and Social Justice, based in Brussels. Climate and social policies must be two sides of the same European coin in the future. We need to develop climate-neutral energy systems and industries. Simultaneously, we need to safeguard and strengthen the welfare state, local participation and workers’ rights.

FES Just Climate acts as a think tank about current and coming trends, and a policy advisor in ongoing debates. We support FES offices and their partners in shaping the industrial revolution of our times. We focus on energy, industrial, structural and labor policies, and the European Green Deal.

FES Just Climate works with political, trade union and civil society partners and think tanks. Get in touch at justclimate(at)fes.de!
