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.
There will be ample time for discussion. The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP. This event will also be livestreamed on IPS’s Youtube channel.
