For an inclusive and socially just European Green Deal: Integrating gendered and intersectional perspectives in Green Deal policies

The European Green Deal aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 while “leaving no one behind”. However, policies designed to mitigate and adapt to climate change have largely failed to consider gendered and intersectional impacts, resulting in uneven and unequal consequences for different social groups.

ACCTING explores the impact of Green Deal policies on the individual and collective behaviour of vulnerable groups, and how policies can effectively integrate gendered and intersectional perspectives to address the climate crises to promote an inclusive and socially just European Green Deal.

Building on desk research and fieldwork in 13 European countries, co-creation in Open Studios as well as workshops in which insights were operationalised into recommendations, the project has produced a policy brief which presents research findings and policy recommendations resulting from them.
