Mining, minerals and limits: grounding the green transition

Caroline Whyte from Feasta joined Fidelma O'Kane and Gerry McGovern as speakers at this online event, hosted by Feasta, CAIM and Futureproof Clare, on February 1 at 7:30pm. Caroline described a possible future strategy for those who support the transition to renewable energy, but who also wish to ensure that this process does not cause unnecessary environmental damage.

2022 round-up, and appeal: please help Feasta to shift the economic narrative further in 2023!

The turbulence of the past year has made it clearer than ever that our growth-fixated, resource-squandering, and savagely unjust economy is neither viable nor desirable. There's never been a more urgent or obvious need to shift onto an economic path that leads towards societal and ecological health. Feasta's vision is bold, holistic, and global in scope - because that's what's needed.

But it does not address the cause, an economic system dependent on fossil fuel combustion and driven by an infinite-economic-growth mindset and institutions", writes Mike Sandler.
