What are your concerns for the environment and future generations?

We are facing a planetary crisis that will require a rapid transformation of our economy and society. It is imperative that this transformation be linked to addressing the vast inequalities of wealth that have blown up over the past several decades. We will not solve our ecological crisis without challenging the institutions of capitalism that have created it.
