Registration is now open for this event which comes at a critical time for our planet, its people and the entire living world. Lives and livelihoods have been unequally impacted and threatened by climate change, ecological degradation and the global pandemic. The construction of alternative livelihoods requires a radical transformation of economy, culture and society. What are the institutional arrangements which safely provide for basic needs, social stability and democratic legitimacy in the transition to environmental sustainability? How can both social justice and ecological justice for the populations of the Global North and the Global South be ensured? How can political support be mobilised for the necessary transformations?

We have had an enormous response to our calls for contributions with a variety of symposia and round tables, artistic and participatory events, that will appeal to scholars and activists concerned.

We are pleased to announce there will be conversations with Naomi Klein and George Monbiot and events with indigenous activists and with trade unionists.

There is NO CHARGE to attend this virtual Conference as an Attendee or Invited Speaker. Presenters are asked to contribute a fee to help cover the costs.
