Series description: The People’s Green New Deal issue Editorial Collective and the Climate Change Working Group of Science for the People are excited to announce a virtual teach-in series focusing on the grassroots movements that are building a People’s Green New Deal. This teach-in on Indigenous Knowledge and a Red Deal will be the sixth in an going series.
As the conversation around what constitutes a Green New Deal shifts and changes with the risk of being co-opted by the same capitalists who have endangered our existence with their willful negligence, and at times intentional acceleration, of the climate crisis, we must continue to push for meaningful policy. This series of teach-ins will center grassroots organizing movements led by coalitions of environmental justice communities, academics and activists, not just in the US, but around the globe. These teach-ins are based on the People’s Green New Deal issue of Science for the People magazine, and will continue to build an internationalist, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist vision. Attend the teach-ins to join the conversations among scientists, labor organizers, artists, designers and community activists, that will inform our ongoing organizing work to meet the climate crisis
