Friends of the Earth Northern Ireland Event. Whose economy is it anyway?

Whose economy is it anyway: how I learned to love radical transformative economics.

Northern Ireland must play its part in tackling the climate and nature emergencies. But does it have the skilled workforce to deliver the progress we need in the next decade? With the current focus on COVID recovery, we must ensure it is fair, green, and accessible to all.

This seminar will bring together speakers from the environment, international development, participative decision making, and women and young people’s sectors together with activists from across the country to develop a shared vision for the future of Northern Ireland.

Our panel of speakers will look at the challenges and opportunities for achieving the scale of green jobs and economic restructuring we need to ensure sustainable careers, enhance well-being, and tackle the climate and nature crises.

Speakers include:

Asad Rehman, War on Want, Director and Declan Allison, Friends of the Earth, Campaigner. More speakers to be confirmed.

  • Anyone with an interest in NI tackling the climate and nature emergencies
  • Anyone with an interest in green economics/just transition
  • Climate Action Groups
