The GREEN NEW DEAL is a great start in the right direction, and there is so much more that needs to follow. YES MAGAZINE co-hosted a conversation with experts from the nonprofit The Land Institute to discuss policy proposals and new ways to rebuild our sense of self and community from the bottom up.
The discussion was prompted by a new book, The Green New Deal and Beyond, by Stan Cox, the Land Institute’s lead scientist for perennial crops. He was joined by his colleagues, Director of Ecosphere Studies Aubrey Streit Krug, and President Emeritus Wes Jackson. The event was moderated by YES! contributing editor Robert Jensen.
Together they share a range of ideas and strategies for envisioning a better future.
The conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity and can be read in 8 minutes here. We all need to learn more and lean toward solutions with all we have to give.
