Changemaker: Sharan Burrow on Enabling Just Transition





Join this edition of the Academy Changemaker Series featuring Sharan Burrow.

Sharan Burrow has been the General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation since 2010, representing 200 million workers around the world. In her role, she advocates for the essential role of labor movements in shaping a just transition to a low-carbon economy.
