The Green New Deal proposals emerging around the world call for transformation of our economies so they meet the needs of people and the planet. In this session we will explore trade alternatives that go beyond the false choice between right-wing nationalism and neoliberal free trade. How do current trade rules constrain us, and how could alternatives be designed that prioritize human rights and the environment?
This will be the first session in a new series that will explore trade alternatives for human rights, renewable energy, and other sectors.
Speakers: Avi Lewis (documentary filmmaker/The Leap, Canada); Lucia Bárcena (Transnational Institute); Alberto Arroyo (Convergencia Mexicana Mejor sin TLCs); Arthur Stamoulis (Citizens Trade Campaign, US). Moderated by Karen Hansen-Kuhn (Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy)
