Join this session:
A new social contract for an eco-social world?
This presentation will address the following objectives:
- To recognize that inequality, climate change and biodiversity loss are inter-related crises and symptoms of the need for radical and systemic economic, political and social reform.
- To learn from insights of social and environmental movements working on social and green agendas, on what they envision in a new social contract.
- To explore the mechanisms and processes, such as dialogues, just transition forums and citizen assemblies, that enable citizens to engage with Government and other significant and powerful actors to hold their governments to account and define a new eco-social contract.
