  • With Everything Up For Grabs. The Green New Deal(s) the World Needs Now

  • The new weekly webinar series, organized by transform! europe together with Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Brussels and New York Offices, focused on developing internationalist visions for Green New Deal(s) that will work for the whole planet in the post-Covid era.

    While entering a new decade, humanity is facing unprecedented challenges, the ongoing climate crisis and the start of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic are reshaping our world, exacerbating inequalities and fueling the rise of authoritarianism and nationalistic politics.

    Recently, a powerful narrative has emerged as a call for change: The Green New Deal, which carries with it the hope to deliver deep social and economic transformations. 

    Today, the need to shape program(s)that conveys a comprehensive de-carbonization and restructuring of our economies as well as our social system while preserving the climate from collapsing has become imperative.
