The One Million Climate Jobs Campaign is an alliance of labour, social movements and other civil society organisations that are mobilising for real solutions to the threat of climate change. Cutting emissions that lead to climate change is urgent and involves doing many things while overcoming unemployment and creating decent jobs is just as urgent. The campaign places the interests of workers and the poor at the forefront of strategies to combat climate change and demands that governments work to create ‘one million climate jobs.’
