10.30am – 5.00pm
Capitalism is killing the planet. Every day the news gets worse. The desperate drive for profit is tearing apart the ecosystem. Planetary boundaries have been breached as carbon and other greenhouse gases accumulate. We urgently need an eco-socialist movement.
We are hosting a conference on 2 December 2023 to discuss how to create an eco-socialist movement that is rooted in the trade unions, the communities, our schools, colleges and universities, in social movements and our workplaces. Such a movement must tackle the big issues; socialising private wealth, housing and land, ending the market economy, dismantling imperialism, fighting for the abolition of borders, militarism and policing and for a social transformation of the economy from the ground up.
The conference was initiated by Anticapitalist Resistance with this public appeal.

1. How capitalism destroys the environment
Capitalism is a system that prioritises profits over everything. Every year global leaders meet and pledge to do something but still the environmental damage continues. This session will hear why our current economic system is incompatible with life on Earth.
2. Should we “degrow” the economy?
Some say that we need to degrow the economy and reduce economic activity to deal with the environmental crisis whilst others believe this will negatively impact people and we need a different approach. Come and join the debate!
3. Developing an ecosocialist strategy
Speakers from campaigns on the front line against global warming and environmental degradation and a chance to contribute on how we can organise an ecosocialist movement after the conference.
