Event Details

In this week’s webinar, we’ll hear local and international examples of how big business and governments have used moments of crisis to push for changes that benefit profit, not people.

Corporations have capitalised on these shocks to make even larger profits, and remove regulations and safeguards for their employees and wider society.

We will hear from Alberto Villareal, Economic Justice Programme Coordinator at Friends of the Earth International, who will talk about experience of this in Latin America.

We’ll also welcome Gabby Jeliazkov from Platform who will discuss the way fossil fuel and energy companies are responding to the pandemic and how we can instead push for a just transition away from dirty energy.

This webinar will take place on Zoom. You will be sent a link and instructions on how to join once you have registered on Eventbrite.
