How can we change the trade deals that are fuelling climate breakdown?
The US-UK trade deal isn’t just a threat to our food standards and public services, it’s also a threat to our world. The whole model of corporate globalisation that drives international trade today is a major cause of climate breakdown. At Global Justice Now, we see campaigning on trade and climate as interconnected. It is vital that we take action on trade rules if we are to have any hope of tackling the climate crisis.
Jackie Oversby will give a short talk covering the following subjects:
How do trade rules override climate treaties?
How can trade deals block climate action?
How can we change them?
Have we any chance of succeeding?
Reading Climate Festival is a week-long programme of free events to inspire action on climate change, curated by Reading Climate Action Network.
