We need millions of new green jobs to build a sustainable future. With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s release of the Green New Deal Resolution in February, our society is now having a conversation about the GND. Justine will present an overview of her book The Great Pivot, which details 30 projects in energy, transportation, the circular economy, reducing food waste, and restoring nature that will fix the crisis in the world of work caused by outsourcing, automation, and the gig economy. We have the talent and the resources to pivot from business as usual and build the sustainable future that we and future generations need. In the process of saving the planet we may just save ourselves.
This 45 minute presentation by the author will be followed by 20 minutes of breakout discussions then the group will come back together as a whole to discuss for 20 minutes.
