As the furlough scheme comes to a close, the government’s new Job Support Scheme offers little to prevent the looming unemployment crisis. At the same time, the climate emergency has not gone away. It is time for the government to act boldly and invest directly in green projects that will create hundreds of thousands of jobs whilst reshaping the UK economy for a sustainable, low-carbon future.

What role should the government play in tackling the economic and climate crises? What opportunities are there for priority, job-creating green investments? How can we ensure that a green transition is a just one, and that workers and communities have their voices heard and receive the support they need?
