From Plunder to Solidarity

When

Saturday, 1st June 2024

Where

Global Justice Now, Nottingham Contemporary, Weekday Cross, Nottingham, NG1 2GB, United Kingdom

Join an event with Global Justice Now in Nottingham to discuss how we how we move from a global economy based on plunder to one based on solidarity.

Does climate breakdown mean we need a green new deal, degrowth or something else? How do we undo our exploitative global economy? Can we build a world for the billions, not the billionaires?

The climate and ecological crises are deeply embedded in our economic system, which not only values profit above people and the planet, but drives global inequality. From mining to cattle ranching, to a financial system which sucks wealth from the global south, multinational corporations are at the centre of an exploitative system whose social and environmental costs are borne elsewhere.

We urgently need to end the era of fossil fuels, but how do we ensure the race by global powers to secure critical resources for the energy transition doesn’t create new imperialist dynamics? Transforming the global economy can seem like a vast task, but change is possible.

Join this event to discuss how we keep the momentum going, challenge neo-colonialism and environmental destruction, and what that means for how we live – in other words, how we move from a global economy based on plunder, to one based on solidarity.

  • Ulrich Brand, co-author of The Imperial Mode of Living
  • Nadia Whittome, Labour MP for Nottingham East
  • Ana Caistor Arendar, Progressive International
