More details here.

winning a green new dealThe climate crisis is an emergency. Without major and rapid reduction in CO2 emissions, runaway global temperature rise will be unstoppable, leading to harvest failure, political instability and millions of deaths – here and in the Global South.

We need to decarbonise, fast. Achieving this will require transforming our economy, making it sustainable and just. It is an opportunity to address systemic inequality, build public luxury – free clean energy, free public transport – and create a fairer world.

In the UK we have a historic role to play. As the first country to industrialise, so too must we be the first to decarbonise. Join Manchester Momentum and Laurie Laybourn-Langton (IPPR) to discuss the crisis – and more importantly, what we can do in Manchester, the Labour Party and beyond to build the movement for a Green New Deal.
