29jun3:00 pm5:00 pmLeft Forum Workshop: Budgeting for a Ecosocialist Green New Deal


Event Details

The Green New Deal resolution proposed in Congress is in the national spotlight but it is a list of aspirations, not a real plan. This panel will look at what a real plan should entail. What will it cost, and where will the funds come from, for a Green New Deal that enacts an Economic Bill of Rights to jobs, income, housing, health care, and education and a Green Economy Reconstruction Program that converts all sectors of production, not just electric power production, to 100% clean energy and sustainability over the next decade or two? The speakers will present the budget for a Green New Deal of this scale. They will also make the case that this program will require substantial demilitarization of the economy, social ownership of key industries, and a democratic economic planning structure to coordinate the ecological conversion of all sectors of production.


(Saturday) 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
