ONLINE | Hoodwinked in the Hothouse Part IV: Greenwashing Disaster Capital
Thursday, July 21, 2 pm Eastern US
Now more than ever, we must come together to protect our planet and people. Join us to examine some of the most dangerous greenwashing threats we face around the world, and participate in a workshop to explore how grassroots groups can fight back, and debunk corporate greenwash with our own stories, strategies and solutions for change.
We are witnessing corporate interests hijack critical climate action around the world, by co-opting key concepts, frameworks and language from our movements, often faster than we can generate them.
Traditional ecological knowledge concepts like biomimicry, strategy frameworks like a just transition, and even popular narratives like building a regenerative economy have been co-opted in recent years by big NGOs, philanthropists and academic institutions to advance neoliberal schemes like pollution trading at policy arenas like the UNFCCC.
Scores of universities, government agencies, corporations, NGOs and funders are engaged in this widespread greenwashing pandemic – serving a colonial extractivist agenda that awards $trillions in subsidies to polluting corporations, creating structural barriers to the advancement of proven strategies and real solutions that our communities and the planet really need.
Join Moderator Tom Goldtooth of Indigenous Environmental Network and Speakers, Dipti Bhatnagar of Friends of the Earth, Leonardo Figueroa Helland of The New School, Mike Ewall of Energy Justice Network, Nnimmo Bassey of Health of Mother Earth Foundation, Silvia Ribeiro of ETC Group, members of the Hoodwinked Collaborative and webinar participants to learn how corporate greenwashing is affecting communities globally and locally.
