More on the Just Transition

At the 2021 Annual POLIS Conference in Gothenburg, POLIS launched the Just Transition Agenda, where we established key actions needed to ensure a fair, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable urban mobility transition. We have seen some inspiring progress since then; however, there is still much more to be done. This is why we have established the Just Transition Taskforce to help us integrate the Just Transition across all of POLIS’ activities, putting citizens first and ensuring that the mobility transition we strive towards is one that has everyone on board.
