Center for Popular Economics Summer Institute 2018
Center for Popular Economics' Summer Institute is a residential, week-long intensive training in economics for activists, educators, media makers, and anyone who wants a better understanding of how the economy works.
This year’s institute will offer economic tools and analysis to understand the vital challenges of our time like climate change and the racial wealth gap. We will discuss such topics as “free” trade agreements and international finance, corporate power, economic and military imperialism, and global environmental justice. We will also explore existing and proposed alternatives for democratic economic institutions, fairer trade and migration systems, and equitable solutions to the climate crisis.
#ResistAndBuild Webinar with Cooperation Jackson & Black Lives Matter
Resist and Build, Fight and Build, Oppose and Propose, Resist and Insist - whatever the wording, there is great convergence about the need to connect these dimensions. Even if the lines are a bit blurry, we can broadly distinguish between resist work that seeks to fight back against an oppressive, unjust and unsustainable social/economic system, and the build work of the solidarity economy that seeks to build 'another world' beyond capitalism to one that puts people and planet, equity, justice and sustainability front and center. Resistance without knowing where you're going is likely to lead only to reform of the current system. Building a solidarity economy without being grounded in grassroots organizing runs the risk of losing touch with the struggle that impels the need for a solidarity economy in the first place.
