Science for the People calls for a “People’s Green New Deal” to combat the climate crisis with widespread democratic input.
Watch our series of 7 online teach-ins covering topics such as agroecology, just transition, energy democracy, indigenous rights, and design and art for a People’s Green New Deal!
Check out the Science for the People magazine issue on A People’s Green New Deal.
The Climate Change working group as well as several chapters of Science for the People have organized various events on a Green New Deal.
We crafted various resources to aid campaigning at the local and national level.
Longer term goals for the campaign include:
Bring the Green New Deal into the classroom. Working with school teachers and community groups, we will develop a series of popular educational trainings and materials. These are intended to de-mystify topics that are made unnecessarily complex by entrenched corporate interests and bureaucracies, such as how energy systems work.
Pro-actively build relationships to break down barriers across sections of the climate movement, especially between university-centered organizing and community/environmental justice struggles.
Help the climate justice movement build a powerful platform for the democratic intake of opinions and arguments for what a Green New Deal should include and avoid.
