The Green New Deal

Justine Burt

11 a.m., August 4, 2019

In February, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey released the Green New Deal Resolution, which seeks to address climate change by creating millions of new green jobs that will decarbonize our economy. These broad brush strokes provide the framework. Now we as a society get to have a conversation about what we want the details to be. Join us for a presentation followed by Q&A.

Presenter and facilitator Justine Burt recently wrote a book called The Great Pivot: Creating Meaningful Work to Build a Sustainable Future. She will give an overview of the Green New Deal from the Sunrise Movement, and present highlights of her book.

You can see the slides from her presentation here.
