Plymouth Social Club presents: The Case for the Green New Deal
29th October 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree – £5
Ann Pettifor is an economist, New Economics Foundation fellow and author. Her latest book is The Case for the Green New Deal, from Verso Books. Ann will be joining us to discuss it for our second Plymouth Social Club event, in partnership with Real Ideas Organisation – where we are exploring ideas and tools for a new economy, and fairer and more just society.
The Green New Deal is on the edge of being one of the biggest global campaigns of our times, with individual but connected activism in the UK and America leading the way, coming off the back of decades of campaigns and battles for environmental justice around the world.
From Verso’s website: ‘’The Green New Deal demands a radical and urgent reversal of the current state of the global economy: including total de-carbonisation and a commitment to fairness and social justice.
Critics on all sides have been quick to observe that the GND is a pipe dream that could never be implemented, and would cost the earth. But, as Ann Pettifor shows, we need to rethink the function of money, and how it works within the global system. How can we bail out the banks but not the planet?’’
Join the Plymouth Social Club at Ocean Studios 29/10/19, doors 18:30, kickoff at 19:15, finishing around 21:00. Bar, food, and discussion will all be available.
Free tickets for those who need them, £5 for everyone else.
