The Green New Deal has galvanised a generation in the global north who call for green jobs and training to rapidly decarbonise society. Its aims are ambitious and radical. But to address the interrelated climate, covid-19 and capitalist crises we must go beyond the national-level. Join us for a two part workshop to discuss the conditions for a globally just Green New Deal and explore how we can build it together, taking leadership from voices in the Global South who have long called for holistic and systemic change.

Part 1 of this series will explore the role of the supply chain in green capitalism. The global south is often forgotten in discussions about a green transition, but it is these very communities that extract the basic raw materials - metals and minerals - that make such a transition possible. Through this process they face poor labour rights, extractive economics, conflict and the politics of neocolonialism. How can UK and US activists fight this north-south imbalance of power?
