Systemic Change and Environmental Justice in India, the United States, and Beyond
April 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In what ways are our political and economic systems designed to produce unjust, unequal outcomes for people, and destruction of our environment? What does a systemic transformation based on deepening democracy look like, and how does it transform these destructive and unjust outcomes? How do we win a just, democratic, and sustainable future?
Join us for a discussion on these and similar questions, drawing upon parallel experiences and insights from several different continents.
- Ashish Kothari, founder-member of Indian environmental group Kalpavriksh, will speak about the vision for Radical Ecological Democracy in India and beyond.
- Johanna Bozuwa, Research Associate on energy democracy, Next System Project, will speak about municipal control of energy utilities as a tool for energy democracy in the United States and Europe.
