A global movement

The Green New Deal is spreading from the ground up. Organizers follow scientists and Indigenous communities and in turn mobilize their communities to change the political spectrum of what is possible.

Why a Green New Deal?

Organizers, workers, economists, public intellectuals, and politicians across the political spectrum agree we need change now. Here is what they say about the Green New Deal:
It is a transformational vision for the next economy that is about battling inequality on every level.

Naomi Klein
Author of On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal
We will not achieve climate justice without Indigenous human rights. UNDRIP and the right to free and informed prior consent are central to our struggle.
Leah Gazan
Member of Parliament for Winnipeg Centre and Our Time GND champion
The science also tells us that it is absolutely possible – technologically, humanly and economically – to limit global warming. Political will is a necessary element of the solution.
