ENDGAMES? Capitalism and the climate emergency
26 October at 9:30 am – 5:00 pm£5 – £20
Every day brings new climate calamities. Beyond these looms the risk of cascading ‘tipping points’ and runaway warming. Millions of people are suffering under the impact of extractive industries, pollution and climate breakdown, while biodiversity is declining.
The ecological catastrophe is inseparable from the capitalist system; from its border regimes, from imperialist wars, from the relentless drive for profit.
We know the problem facing us is not only technological, but political. A mass movement against climate change is emerging. We need the strategies and practical capability to confront governments and capital to radically reduce emissions. Can the Green New Deal go far enough? What are the alternatives? How do we organise in the face of climate breakdown?
Join us for a day of anti-capitalist discussion on the politics of climate breakdown.
