New York, NY 10002Presentations by: Sean Sweeney, John Treat & Irene HongPing Shen
(CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies, International Program for Labor, Climate and Environment / Trade Unions for Energy Democracy)

Join us as we take a critical look at current mainstream climate policies and discuss alternative strategies towards effectively combating climate change while creating the conditions for true economic and social justice.Climate change poses a serious threat to our living and working environments. Drastic measures are urgently needed, but we must go beyond the profit-driven solutions being promoted by mainstream climate advocates. Our panelists call into question the impacts and goals when profit margins are prioritized over our pressing ecological and social needs, accelerating the existential and potentially irreversible threats to our communities for the benefit of a few.There will be a public discussion following the panel as we look at the critical role of public ownership of energy resources and why we must move away from investor-focused policies that do not help us meet our climate goals.

This event is free and open to the public. Reserve your ticket here.
