The principal focus of this year’s – the 7th international conference organized by the Transform!Danmark network – is the global crisis and red-green alternatives.
The conference will continue the objective of the previous conferences to explore left alternatives in the economic and ecological field, but seen in the context of the developing global and European crises.
As pointed out in the introduction to the conference, we need to debate how to respond to the growing systemic crisis, requiring systemic red and green alternatives.
The theme will be explored in a plenary in the morning as well as in two parallel seminars in the afternoon: One on how to combat climate change – and the role of ecosocialism and ecofeminism. The other on our common goods – resisting privatization; reclaiming public services.
There will as well be organized workshops and time for networking.
Participation fee (to cover for food and drink during the day): 100 DKK (to be paid in cash at the entrance)
Organisers: Transform!Danmark in cooperation with the transform! europe network, and supported by Enhedslisten/the RedGreen Alliance, Det Ny Clarté, Solidaritet, Afrika Kontakt, DiEM25-Copenhagen, NOAH – Friends of the Earth, and others.
Introduction: How to respond to the growing systemic crisis in Europe and globally? This is a combination of multiple crises - political, social, climate and environmental - requiring systemic alternatives. System criticism is not enough. The conference is a contribution to the debate on if and how to break with the capitalist system underlying the crises and to develop red and green alternatives.
