Political implementation of the demands for a Global Green New Deal
A vision for achieving climate, social and economic justice
Please note: this is a face-to-face event taking place in Brussels
The prevailing neoliberal global economic system has put societies and nature in a threatening situation. Despite decades of promises to end extreme poverty, to fight world hunger and provide a decent life for all, to mitigate the climate change and the extinction of various species, the economic policy of exploiting nature, resources and people continues to drive the global economy and destroy the foundations of life on the planet and the planet itself. Instead of improvement of living conditions, we experience a variety of crises that influence and increase each other. A Global Green New Deal could initiate the transition from the current system to a climate-friendly, fair and just way of economics and a fundamental change of the world economy. A comprehensively, equitably and environmentally sustainable Global Green New Deal that addresses the multiple crises is more necessary than ever.
