Green Economics: A Series of Community Gatherings on the Ongoing Economic Crisis

Green Economy: A Series of Community Gatherings - Sponsored by the Green Party of South Puget Sound (GPSPS), February, March, and April 2010
We will host a series of community discussions, each one preceded by an informative meeting, on the causes of the economic crisis and a variety of proposals to deal with it. The 12-part series will occur on a variety of days
(both weeknights and weekend days) over a period of 9 weeks from approximately mid-February to late April. The topics will flow logically from one session to the next to create a comprehensive series, but each session will also stand alone so you can participate in those that suit your schedule.

This Green Economics series will include films, speakers, panels, and a great many sources of information that you can read to prepare for the discussions. These information sources will include websites and a variety of articles that will be posted on this website before the series begins.
