Towards a 21st-century Socialist Green Programme

In this fight against the climate crisis, we believe the Green Growth framework provides a transitional path towards a sustainable future but stops short of imagining a world beyond capitalism. On the other hand, the Degrowth/Post-Growth framework has a post-capitalist imagination but perhaps not a concrete transitional path from here to there. We need, however, _both_ a transitional path from capitalism to an alternate system as well as a vision of such a society, which is based on equality in rights, opportunities and outcomes; collective ownership of the means of production; people’s well being over profits. In what follows, we imagine such a path — working on the complementarities instead of the differences between these two frameworks — which we call Socialist Green Growth.
