Why Radical Change is Required to Address the Climate Crisis: Nesta talks to Ann Pettifor

24/11/2020 12:00-13:00

To protect the future of life on earth, we need to do more than just reimagine the economy – we have to change everything.

In this discussion, Ann Pettifor – author of The Case for the Green New Deal – argues that economic change is wholly possible, based on the understanding that finance, the economy and the ecosystem are all tightly bound together.

Join us to explore her manifesto for total decarbonisation and an economy based on fairness and social justice.
