The Green New Deal(s) the world needs now: Alternative trade rules for climate action
The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung webinar series Everything up for grabs: The Green New Deal(s) the world needs now continues with a conversation moderated by Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy's Karen Hansen-Kuhn.
Chapter Three — Alternative trade rules for climate action
Thursday, May 21 2020
10 a.m. CST / 11 a.m. EST / 5 p.m. CEST
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?
