The transition to a sustainable economy is affecting not only businesses and governments but also individuals. At this event we will discuss the significant effects of the climate transition on people in various regions, starting with the major trends highlighted in the most recent EBRD Transition Report. Entitled “Transitions big and small,” it looks at how economic shifts translate into the “small transitions” of career moves, changes in physical and mental health, the refurbishment of housing and – ultimately – changes in people’s satisfaction with life. We will then dive into other research on generational divides on climate measures and how they will feature in forthcoming election campaigns.
