Meeting ID: 863 4472 7215

Passcode: 254636

How can we transform ecologically destructive, oligarchic political structures and align Canadian society with the values of democracy, equality, and ecological sustainability?

Discuss with other activists how progressive movements can reject the politics of division, and instead, organize to build new shared narratives, collective identities, and effective strategies to unify the diverse working class and to win transformative change. Co-create a clear agenda for “Green Labour” or how workers must organize for just transition.

Who should attend? People concerned and active for peace, climate justice, social equity to reduce poverty, organizing labour and improving democracy.
