On December 7, 2009, world leaders and international NGOs will meet in Copenhagen to chart out a course for a new global climate deal, and in doing so, try to set up a new post-WTO framework for economic globalization. Outside the conference halls, a convergences of climate justice activists from the Global South will be waiting to say “Another World is Possible.” Join environmental and climate justice activists for a lead up discussion to the November 30th day of action and on the road to Copenhagen.
Speakers will kick us off with some thoughts on these questions:

* From an environmental justice perspective, what’s the best thing that could come out of Copenhagen? What’s the worst?

* How will differences between the Global South and powers in the north be resolved? Who will shoulder the impact of these changes?

* How are social movements in the Global South organizing around Copenhagen and how are these movements different than in the United States?

* Are there any openings that progressive activists in the US can build on to advance environmental and climate justice?
