Do we need Socialism to address the Climate Emergency with Professor Boris Frankel

Despite all the talk, the world is still rushing towards a climate catastrophe.

Attempts to coax, regulate and incentivise the private sector to deliver a green economy have so far met with limited success. Can this approach ever work? Or do the state and the community now need to step in and impose their authority with bold and sweeping public programmes?

In the USA the cry has been raised for a Green New Deal and in the UK for a Green Industrial Revolution. Both are seen as part and parcel of an explicitly socialist platform. Does Australia need a similarly radical approach? How would that translate to Australia’s traditions and current state? Would it be a socialist programme?

In this event we ask our speakers to address our questions about socialism through the lens of the climate emergency.

Professor Boris Frankel is Honorary Principal Fellow at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute. In his latest book, Fictions of Sustainability: The Politics of Growth and Post-Capitalist Futures, he discusses the growing political contest between defenders of capitalist societies on the one side, and the policies and imagined futures advanced by green and socialist critics on the other.
