The Tommy Douglas Institute and rabble.ca, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE DOUGLAS COLDWELL LAYTON FOUNDATION, are pleased to present:
COVID! CAPITALISM! CLIMATE!
Three storms have converged and we’re all caught in the vortex. What brought us to this point? Can we go back to normal? Do we even want to?From economic and climate justice to rethinking cities and peoples’ health, this 6-part series invites thinkers and activists to envision the possibilities of a newer, brighter and necessary future.
In the words of the great Tommy Douglas…
Courage, my friends; 'tis not too late to build a better world.
