The Just Transition Research Project, led by the Energy Democracy Project (EDP), has been developed to examine what a just transition means to workers, communities and businesses in our region and identify pathways for socially inclusive decarbonisation. 

The project aligns with the three cross-cutting priorities of the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA): Net Zero Transition, Inclusive Economy, and Innovation in Recovery. The research builds upon previous citizen-led engagement on climate change in the region, such as the Climate Change Citizens’ Assembly. The project will publish the final report outlining policy recommendations for NTCA and other stakeholders.
