ROAR’s fifth virtual Next World Conversation on Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. is focused on what the next economy will look like.
Please join us as Fadhel Kaboub, Professor of Economics at Denison University, engages in conversation with Denise Fairchild, Director of Emerald Cities Cooperative.
How can we build a economic system that is supportive of a healthy planet, productive for new and more sustaining jobs, and that addresses the deep racial and social inequities which has been exposed and exacerbated by the combined COVID-19 and climate crises?
