[ClimateWeekNYC] Andrew Revkin in Conversation with Kate Raworth and Roman Krznaric
What decisions can we make today as individuals and societies to create a better tomorrow?
Join Andrew Revkin of the Columbia Climate School, economist Kate Raworth, and philosopher Roman Krznaric for a conversation on how reinventing economics and incorporating long-term thinking into our current policies and practices can help us meet the challenges of climate breakdown and global inequality and transform our world for future generations.

His previous international bestsellers, including Empathy, The Wonderbox and Carpe Diem Regained, have been published in more than 20 languages.
Kate Raworth is a renegade economist focused on making economics fit for 21st century realities. She is the creator of the Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries, and co-founder of Doughnut Economics Action Lab.
