People’s Rally: This global economy is killing us: how the climate crisis is a crisis of capitalism – and what we do about it
Climate change is being driven by the rules of corporate dominated global economy: global trade rules, financial institutions, and the debt system. This session will look at how these systems work and why we can’t hope to deal with climate change without a transformation of our economy. Our speakers will outline what an international economy, which meets the needs of people and the planet looks like, how and why we can win.
