The rapid rise of the Green New Deal onto the political agenda has provided new hope that the U.S. might develop a policy response worthy of the climate crisis. However, there remain crucial questions about what a Green New Deal would actually entail. There is no shortage of technical work on decarbonization by economists and engineers. However, this knowledge needs to be integrated with historical and political perspectives that can place policies in a broader perspective.
In an effective policy program, evidence-based technical details must be supported by savvy political messaging and organizational implementation. This event will bring together academics, civil society groups, and policymakers for a day-long workshop on the politics and implementation of Green New Deal legislation. The central question for the day will be, what form should the Green New Deal take so as to maximize political sustainability and institutional effectiveness?
