A New Multilateralism for Shared Prosperity: Achieving a Global Green New Deal

October 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The Green New Deal offers a bold and transformative vision for rethinking sustainable development in the US. It has also spurred discussions about how these policies can be scaled up to a global context. Fundamental to crafting a ‘Global Green New Deal’ is reassessing the role of international financial institutions, whose undemocratic market fundamentalism presents a major barrier to sustainable development.

Moderated by Sarah Anderson, Director of the Global Economy Project of the Institute for Policy Studies. This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, ITUC, Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center, Bretton Woods Project, and Sierra Club and co-hosted by Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Adriano Espaillat.

This briefing will draw on the following proposals:

Panelists:

  • Richard Kozul-Wright, Director, Division on Globalization and Development Strategies, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development
  • Miriam Brett, International Development Finance Project Manager, Bretton Woods Project
  • Ben Beachy, Director of the Living Economy Program, Sierra Club
