Power to the People: A Strategy Discussion on Advancing Social Ownership of Energy

Date:

Time: 
09.00 - 17.00
Location: 
New York, USA
Event type: 
PSI General Secretary, Rosa Pavanelli, with representatives of PSI affiliates will be taking part in a strategic discussion on advancing social ownership of energy organised by the Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (TUED) on 20 September 2014 in New York. The TUED delegation will join in the People's Climate March on 21 September 2014.

Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (TUED) is an emerging global community of unions who share the view that addressing today’s profound economic and environmental challenges will require a shift towards social ownership, community control and democratic direction of key economic sectors—among the most important of which is energy.

Unions are beginning to adopt energy democracy as a key policy commitment as a means of addressing both immediate worker concerns and the imminent threat of ecological destruction and runaway climate change. The 40-person strategy discussion on September 20 will consider how to expand this commitment across the international trade union movement.
