George Brown College’s 29th Annual Labour Fair Monday, March 22 – Friday, March 26, 2021 - Organizing in a Burning World: Unions, Workers and Social Justice
On our theme
Our theme this year is Organizing in a Burning World: Unions, Workers and Social Justice.
The global pandemic has put social inequality and the climate crisis in stark relief. As social inequality and the climate crisis grow both globally and locally, Indigenous and racialized people, workers, migrants, and poor communities face the brunt of the crisis. Global capitalism and industrialization are clearly massively socially and environmentally destructive. We need bold new policies and a just, sustainable economy. We need, together, to put people before profits, to center human needs ahead of the myth of unrestrained economic growth.
What does this mean to students and workers? From livable wages to livable futures – we’ll come together to discuss how to heal a burning world.
