The new expanded, updated and revised edition of the One Million Climate Jobs pamphlet will be launched at the International Climate Jobs conference on Saturday 20th September in London.

The International Fight for Climate Jobs - For a Future that doesn't Cost the Earth

The conference is timed to coincide with the People's Climate March taking place that weekend in New York with support from American trade unions and involving British trade unionists. This is prior to the UN climate talks in NY from 23 September.
