Socio-ecological transition and employment implications


See video

This WP serves as a ground for further research analysis within the project. It is developed in two steps: (i) based on a literature review it generates a set of assumptions on socio-ecological key transitions (e.g. climate change) relevant to the labour market. (ii) In a second stage, it designs a model that allows checking if the intended changes are physically feasible and if they will help to meet policy targets.
