Just transition for the UK North Sea

Platform London

Platform London is organizing workers in the oil- and gas industry in the North Sea together with the labour unions to promote a just transition to a sustainable future.

Amount granted €45 000
Project period 2021–2022
United Kingdom

The UK oil industry, and the politicians who back it, like using North Sea jobs as an argument against climate action.
Workers’ voices on job security in the energy sector are sidelined.
We urgently need a worker-led energy transition narrative. In 2020, 80% of UK offshore oil and gas workers considered
leaving the industry. Yet 91% have not even heard of “just transition”.
Building on a groundbreaking survey reaching 5% of the workforce, our project works directly with oil workers and their
trade unions to develop, communicate, and win a worker-led energy transition vision.
