The Multdems Climate Action Team is convening a series of forums on comprehensive climate action, beginning with
The Possible Role of Market Mechanisms in Comprehensive Climate Action in Oregon.
Wednesday, November 13th.
Doors open at 6:30; Program 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Hollywood Senior Center
1820 NE 40th Ave.
There is a lot of questioning and concern among climate activists, here and beyond, about the viability of the ‘Market’, or ‘Market Mechanisms’, and by extension the Capitalist economic system, in moving forward to address the Climate Emergency. This has caused division and distrust among individuals and organizations in the environmental community – when we need to be united and moving forward. We want to provide a venue for conversation and discussion that will help identify and address underlying issues, in a way that affirms what we agree on, and helps build the unity and political power we need to accomplish goals we share.
Beginning with an overview of the many facets of the climate crisis, the forum will propose a comprehensive strategy for climate legislation in Oregon that is needed to effectively address this crisis and is consistent with the aspirations of the Green New Deal.
Critical Questions Discussed
Questions such as the following will be addressed and discussed throughout the forum.
What are Market Mechanisms?
Is there a role for them in climate legislation?
What would work better?
Is the proposed comprehensive climate solutions strategy consistent with the aspirations of a Green New Deal?
How can we build the political power needed to pass legislation supporting dramatic climate action here in Oregon?
