Published on May 26, 2016

In this webinar, Stéphanie Danielle Roth, campaign coordinator of the European Initiative ‘Stop TTIP,’ and Local Futures’ Director Helena Norberg-Hodge, engage in an eye-opening discussion about “free trade” treaties that exposes some of their lesser known effects and outlines strategic alternatives. They discuss the link between global trade treaties and other social issues from cultural breakdown and poverty to epidemics of depression and suicide among youth and increased CO2 emissions. They discuss “Investor-State Dispute Settlements” that allow corporations to sue governments, and most importantly, they explore strategies of resistance and renewal from campaigns, petitions, lawsuits, and protests to alternative trade mandates and systemic localization.
