A proposal by Feasta’s Climate Group to expand the existing Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance in order to accelerate a phase-out of the extraction of fossil fuels globally, while providing significant climate finance to the Global South.
On June 25, at this year's Basic Income Guarantee conference, Feasta's Mike Sandler and Brent Ranalli spoke about best practices in carbon pricing and how criticisms that are sometimes made of it can be addressed. (You'll need to register in order to watch the talk, but it's free.)
On May 12, Caroline Whyte gave an online talk for the Wellbeing Economy Alliance (as part of their WEAll Talks series) on 'the climate as a commons', discussing synergies between CapGlobalCarbon and commons thinking.
The official launch of Ireland's Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) Hub featured Kate Raworth of Doughnut Economics and Katherine Trebeck of the Wellbeing Economy Alliance. They joined with Jennifer Wallace of the Carnegie UK Trust, core members of the new WEAll Hub for Ireland, the Irish Doughnut Economics Network and other local Irish activists, North and South.
Caroline Whyte makes some suggestions for a fairer, stabler and more effective financial sector in Ireland, including a Dutch initiative that would create personal safe accounts.
June 8th, 2016, 2-4.30pm, Carmelite Community Center, Dublin. The purpose of this afternoon is to brief attendees on CapGlobalCarbon, set it in a context of the commons and social justice, and to generate ideas about how to implement it.
