Financing the Future We Want

October 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Tune in for TNI’s new monthly webinar series: Ideas into movement, starting Wednesday 7 October 16:00 – 17:30 CET. This series will bring together thinkers and activists to analyse critical global issues and put forward transformative alternatives and solutions. Our focus is transnational, highlighting the global context and dimensions of different crises, as well as profiling the social movements, especially those in the Global South, that are leading struggles for justice.

In the first episode Financing the future we want – from a green recovery to a just transition we will explore the options and mechanisms we have in the current circumstances to avoid austerity and invest in a just transition. How can we ensure that the Global South benefits? How can we change the narrative to stop an unfolding crisis become a deepening emergency?

PLEASE REGISTER. (Spanish interpretation will be available)
