Listen to "Ecological Sustainability, Economic Democracy and Labour's Fight for Climate Justice" on Spreaker. As the climate justice movement grows and the demand for immediate action intensifies, how can we move beyond broad demands and begin implementing the ambitious changes necessary to stop climate change and improve Canadian society?

On a special presentation of last week's 'Transform Your Workplace, Save the Planet' conference, a posse of prestigious panelists including representatives from the CUPW, Green Jobs Oshawa, Iron and Earth and the IWW Environmental Committee join moderator Barry Eidlin (Jacobin, Labour Notes) to explore a set of ambitious proposals for transforming the Canadian economy towards ecological sustainability and economic democracy.
