Rally: This global economy is killing us

How the climate crisis is a crisis of capitalism – and what we do about it

Mon 8 November, 6.30pm-8pm
Centre for Contemporary Arts

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.
