  • Alternative Trade Rules for Climate Action

  • 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.

     

    The Green New Deal proposals emerging around the world call for transformation of our economies so they meet the needs of people and the planet. In this session we will explore trade alternatives that go beyond the false choice between right-wing nationalism and neoliberal free trade. How do current trade rules constrain us, and how could alternatives be designed that prioritize human rights and the environment?
