About this event

RESCUING THE GREEN NEW DEAL

Alan Simpson discusses what needs to be done to cut carbon emissions in half, within this decade, and how to prevent cheap politics from sinking the planet.

“Alan brings a big picture vision wrapped up in glittering examples of what transformation means in practice. From communities, to cities to whole countries, there is no wrong place to start, no part of the economy that doesn’t need to be turned upside down and rethought.” Clive Lewis MP

Alan Simpson was MP for Nottingham South before leaving to work on climate issues. He was advisor on sustainable economics to John McDonnell when he was Shadow Chancellor.

Alan’s new pamphlet, Rescuing the Green New Deal, is available for £5 + p&p from spokesmanbookshop.com
