Wanting the Earth is a reading group on the politics of climate change and possible responses to it. In the early weeks of the reading group, there is a particular focus on left-wing arguments for and against the concept of a “Green New Deal”.
The reading group will meet every fortnight in A4 Sounds studios, as part of our We Only Want the Earth programme. The texts for the first nine sessions are given below. The selection of a text does not imply endorsement; many of the selected texts contradict and critique each other. Participants are asked to read each session’s texts in advance.
Who? The discussions of each text will be informal and open to anyone interested; no background knowledge of these topics is required.
When? Tuesdays 7pm – 9pm Fortnightly from 25th Feb
