In the Ring with TyskySour: Green New Deal

Date

Timings
8pm – 9:15pm

Be part of a live recording of one of Novara Media's flagship podcasts!

Parliament has finally declared climate change a national emergency. However, whilst most of the Corbyn movement is on board with the idea of a Green New Deal, there are many different visions over what a truly transformative Green New Deal can look like. This live episode of TyskySour will delve into these tensions, debating the question: how can Labour's climate policy meet the scale of the challenge we face, while prioritising justice for workers and marginalised communities?

Very limited capacity.
