UK Feminist Green New Deal Policy Papers

The Women’s Budget Group is commissioning a series of policy papers to inform the discussion on how to ensure that gender equality is at the core of the plans to decarbonise the UK economy.

Our second round of discussions will focus on the future of green jobs, and how we can ensure income security in a green, gender-equal economy.

Our first theme explored urban planning, looking at transport, housing and local communities. Future themes will include investment in social infrastructure, money & banking, and process, diversity and democracy.

 

We currently have two calls for tenders:

Green Jobs- STEM and beyond- policy paper

We are currently seeking an experienced researcher to write a policy paper with a focus on expanding the concept of a ‘green job’ beyond the currently understood definition, focused on retrofitting houses and green technology. Whilst these are important, this paper will seek to expand the definition to include jobs within the social infrastructure, such as in the care sector.

Find out more about this call and how to apply.

 

Improving Income Security and Job Conditions in a Green, Gender-Equal Economy- policy paper

We are currently seeking an experienced researcher to write a policy paper with a focus on how to ensure that jobs in a green, low-carbon economy are secure, well-paid and that there is an adequate social security system for those not in employment.

Find out more about this call and how to apply.

 

To apply for either call, please send us a bulleted outline of how you would structure the paper, along with your CV with relevant experience (acquired in a professional, voluntary or academic capacity), and a written sample of your work (relating to the subject if applicable) by no later than 25 July 2021 to anna.johnston@wbg.org.uk. Please make clear in your submission which call you are applying to.

We will inform the successful author for both papers by 28 July.

For a discussion about either of the papers and processes please contact the project lead at sara.reis@wbg.org.uk.

 

About the Feminist Green New Deal project

The Feminist Green New Deal is bringing a gendered and intersectional approach/perspective to the Green economy/Green Recovery – ensuring that the voices of women, people of colour and other marginalised groups are heard during environmental and political debates.

Through a programme of nationwide grassroots workshops and policy roundtables a Feminist Green New Deal Manifesto will be created and launched at COP26 Glasgow Climate Talks.

This Project is a collaboration between Women’s Environmental Network (Wen) and the Women’s Budget Group (WBG).
