"For young workers entering the job market, climate change is one of the defining issues that we will face. We know there are no jobs on a dead planet, and so young workers need to rise up on 15 March to make our voices heard! Our sectors---construction, wood forestry and building materials---will be a critical to achieving a just transition from fossil fuel-based growth that guarantees the protection of worker's right and the protection of our planet.”
