Rethinking Capitalism (ReCap) Webinar Series


Capitalism is in a human, political, social, and environmental crisis. The Rethinking Capitalism (ReCap) Webinar Series is an opportunity to reflect on the failures of our cultural and production model. The objective of these talks is to foster awareness, cooperation, and activism among academics and guide policymakers in implementing corrective policies. Participation in the webinar series is free through zoom.
