A Green New Deal for All

A Green New Deal for All

We are living in a time of crisis and we need bold ideas for real change. A Green New Deal provides a pathway for addressing the greatest crisis of our time, climate change, while also ensuring greater equality and a reduction in poverty through massive public investment in clean energy and good jobs.

While earlier versions of the Green New Deal focused on technological interventions and public investments in clean energy, today’s proposals are more transformational and focus on environmental and social justice. They call for investments in technology and infrastructure, but also highlight the structural inequality that is endemic in the current economic system and seek to address it.

How can a Green New Deal build a better society for all? How can we ensure a GND that is justice-oriented and leads to social and economic transformation? Join the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs, the Global Development Studies Department and the School of Environmental Studies both at Queen’s University on March 4th at 5:30 PM on Zoom to discuss ideas for a transformative vision of a Green New Deal.
