Talks Beyond Growth:
How is the current economic system leading to environmental and social injustice, and how should the system change if we want a safe and just society within the planetary boundaries? Those questions are at the core of this digital speaker-series exploring the interlinkages of capitalism, climate crisis and inequality. Through eight online talks, presented by some of the smartest experts within their field, we put capitalism under the microscope and take a good look at it with through different lenses. We look at some of the current errors of capitalism and introduce some new perspectives on how to address these errors.
Talks Beyond Growth is developed by Nyt Europa in collaboration with Oxfam IBIS and Rethinking Economics DK. A special thanks to Nick Meynen and the EEB. And to CISU and Europa-Nævnet for contributing to the Talks Beyond Growth speaker-series.
