Beyond GDP: Reimagining Economics for Our Common Home

Event Details

This is an opportunity to sign to the first part of the online series From Crisis to Care: Reimagining Economics for our Common Home. The climate crisis and global pandemic have made it starkly clear that old economic ideas are not working. To chart a new future, we need to challenge the accepted idea that economic growth and gross domestic product (GDP) should be key societal goals. How might we reimagine and reorient economics to focus on care for each other and the Earth, our common home?

Join Marilyn Waring, world-renowned feminist, former New Zealand politician, author, academic, and activist for human rights and ecological issues for a webinar on January 20th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm EST. We will explore why growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) often results, not in improvements to health and well-being, but rather greater ecological destruction and social inequality.
