Socialize Production, Democratize Society: Building an Eco-Socialist Future 

There are three convergent challenges threatening humanity: increasing class polarization, the rise of right wing governments and social movements, and ecological collapse. In order to keep humanity from imploding and halt the 6th extinction event, we need radical systems change, and we need it now. By many estimates we have 5 to 10 years to reorganize society in a dramatic fashion in order to stave off calamity. Join Cooperation Jackson and economic Professor Richard Wolff in a discussion about one potential solution to these problems: Ecosocialism. Engage us in a conversation about how to build Ecosocialism from the ground up through the practices of the solidarity economy, that we argue will enable us to fully socialize production and democratize society. We argue that accomplishing these goals will facilitate the radical systems change humanity needs to end the false scarcities created by the capitalist system and eliminate the ecologically extractive practices that enable it. 

Speakers include Richard Wolff, Sacajawea “Saki” Hall and Joshua Dedmond
