The Green New Deal – What is it and How do we Pay for it?
An interactive panel on the Green New Deal – the bold and radical plan to transform the American economy.
A radical plan to decarbonize our economy and address climate change commonly known as the New Green Deal is becoming a hot public policy issue in America. But questions as to what the Green New Deal really is, and whether we could afford it; do not always command easy answers and generally tend to arouse the most passionate controversies.
This panel of distinguished speakers will present three different takes on the Green New Deal and, ask whether it holds the potential for transitioning the US economy towards a greener and more sustainable future.
