Join Greens/EFA MEP, Sara Matthieu, European Green Party committee member, Jean Lambert, former Director of the Spanish office of the International Labour Organisation, Joaquín Nieto Sáinz, and Myrah Vandermeulen, of green think tank Oikos, for a conversation on how we combine climate and social justice as our societies undergo the massive transitions required to tackle the climate crisis.
