debating.society #40 will start at 20.00 instead of 19.00! The talk will be in English.
Financial crash, climate crisis, covid pandemic.... the list of crises created, fueled, or "solved" by the capitalist mode of production in ways that lead to even more suffering and misery could arguably go on indefinitely. After spending most of the last few years focusing on economic developments, Blakeley's edited anthology asks about the future of socialism, what strategies are needed, how viable a Green New Deal would be, and how we get out of all this, because as we know, we have a world to win.

Every first Wednesday of the month, debating.society presents a book that is dedicated to a critical and emancipatory debate on the prevailing conditions. Topics are taken up that are currently determining the daily political debate, but space is also created for topics that are not "trending" at the moment. Apart from the presentation of books, debating.society wants one thing above all: debate!
