Greenpeace Releases “Just Recovery Agenda” Policy Plans

The new policy plans recently released by Greenpeace are unique in that they integrate issues of climate change, environmental justice, inequality, Covid and democracy in a framework that is both powerful and practical.

“The “just, green, and peaceful future we deserve is possible and together we can build the power to manifest it.”

So declares Greenpeace USA’s new “Just Recovery Agenda.” Released Tuesday and packed with more than 100 sweeping policy recommendations for President-elect Joe Biden and members of the next U.S. Congress to embrace, the visionary document plots out a path for erecting new systems that no longer put corporate greed above the public and planet’s well-being.

“Going back to normal is not an option,” the report bluntly states, because what “we knew as ‘normal’ was a crisis.” The coronavirus crisis has thrown that truism into relief, says Greenpeace, but the worsening climate and ecological crises and deep inequality have long made the case for a bold transformation of the dominant economic system.”
