In this session, we’re talking about ecosocialism, a framework for combining insights from the rich tradition of Marxist social analysis with scientific knowledge of our biosphere. How does ecosocialism help us understand how capitalism and overlapping systems of oppression fuel the kinds of extraction that now undermine basic systems of life on Earth? How can ecosocialism help us navigate through the crisis of intensifying climate change and build toward a transformative vision of a future in which all people can thrive in societies that regenerate our planet?
The session will be led by Ashik S., co-chair of Metro DC DSA’s Ecosocialist Caucus and co-founder of The Climate Mobilization.
This event is part of the MDC DSA Socialist Night School.
