On Tuesday 1st December, the Healesville and Upper Yarra branch of the Victorian Greens are delighted to be hosting an online discussion with state Greens MP Ellen Sandell on the subject of a Green New Deal.
In the wake of COVID-19, a recession and with the climate emergency ever more present in our lives, the Greens are proposing a bold new policy platform to create a fairer economy, recover from the current recession by creating sustainable and economically viable jobs, and help prevent the worst effects of the climate crisis. Ellen will outline what this plan looks like and how it could be implemented, and give plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Whether you are a seasoned Green who wants to understand the plan better or someone who thinks a Green New Deal sounds good but isn't really sure what it is, we hope this discussion will be educational and interesting and help get you fired up to turn this dismal 2020 ship around!
Zoom meeting details will be provided closer to the event. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
