Radical Green Demands: For an Economy Fit for Covid and the Climate Emergency
On Thursday 25 February 2021 (18:00) we will be joined by guest speaker Molly Scott Cato to discuss how the economy (and roll out of Universal Basic Income) can work for Wandsworth and the UK under the pressures of Covid and the Climate/Ecological Emergencies.
