Webinar: Planet on fire with Mathew Lawrence and Laurie Laybourn-Langton



 The Institute for Public Policy Research IPPR is delighted to host a webinar to mark the launch of a new book; Planet on fire: A manifesto for the age of environmental breakdown by Mathew Lawrence and Laurie Laybourn-Langton. This will take place on Tuesday 27th April at 16.30-18.00 (GMT) via Zoom.

In the age of environmental breakdown, the political status quo is struggling to adequately respond to the devastating and inequitably distributed consequences of the environmental emergency. We urgently need an alternative to bring about the rapid transformation of our social and economic systems. As we rebuild our lives in the wake of Covid-19 and face the challenges of ecological disaster, how can we bring into being a world fit for life? Planet on Fire offers a detailed and achievable manifesto for a new politics capable of tackling environmental breakdown.

This event will feature a discussion with the two authors chaired by Fatima-Zahra Ibrahim, founder and co-executive director of Green New Deal UK.
