Webinar Chapter 1: With Everything Up For Grabs: The Green New Deal(s) the World Needs Now

This webinar features Walden Bello, Thea Riofrancos and Grace Blakeley and took place on April 29, 2020.

As we move into a new decade, humanity is facing unprecedented challenges. The ongoing climate crisis and the devastating COVID-19 pandemic are reshaping our world, exacerbating inequalities and fuelling the rise of authoritarianism and nationalistic politics.

Recently, a powerful narrative has emerged: the Green New Deal, a powerful call for change that brings with it hopes for delivering deep social and economic transformations. Today, the need for programme(s) that include the comprehensive decarbonisation and restructuring of our economies and social systems while protecting the climate from collapse has become imperative.

This is why the Brussels and New York offices of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung have joined forces with Transform Europe to launch a webinar series that focuses on developing internationalist visions for Green New Deal(s) that will work for the whole planet in the post-COVID era.  In collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA), the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) and the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). Spanish translation will be provided.
