‘Planet on Fire’ with Mathew Lawrence and Laurie Laybourn-Langton


This event, hosted by UK think tank IPPR will launch a new book ‘Planet on Fire’ by Mathew Lawrence & Laurie Laybourn-Langton.

In the age of environmental breakdown, the political status quo is struggling to adequately respond to the devastating and inequitably distributed consequences of the environmental emergency. We urgently need an alternative to bring about the rapid transformation of our social and economic systems. As we rebuild our lives in the wake of Covid-19 and face the challenges of ecological disaster, how can we bring into being a world fit for life? Planet on Fire offers a detailed and achievable manifesto for a new politics capable of tackling environmental breakdown.

This event will feature a discussion with the two authors chaired by Fatima-Zahra Ibrahim, founder and co-executive director of Green New Deal UK.
