  • Social and Ecological Considerations for the Future of the Construction Sector

  • By Stephen Schindler | 24 Feb 20 | Posted under: Ecology , Productive Transformation
  • Without the construction sector, there can be no productive transformation and no Socialist Green New Deal. In this ePaper Stephen Schindler shows why it is so important for the left to familiarize itself with the construction sector and to push it to the centre stage in the discourse for the productive transformation of our European societies.
