    Digital Capitalism Six week course for activists

    AI and digitalisation has become a topic of everyday discussion and debate, but what are its implications for activists fighting for social and environmental justice? This six week course will explore what digital capitalism is, how and by whom is being shaped, its implications for our economy, society and environment, and the possibilities for transformation. If you want to penetrate behind the jargon and hype to properly understand the digital economy, then this course is for you!

    For every product you buy on Amazon, 40% of the price goes directly to Amazon. At the same time, just three private equity firms own 90% of the companies on the New York Stock Exchange. Why compete, when you can own the market? Why produce when you can lay back and collect monopoly rents?

    Conference Dealing with Drugs Cities and the quest for regulation

    In conjunction with numerous cities globally, the city of Amsterdam is contending with the repercussions of drug-related crime. The international conference 'Dealing with Drugs – Cities and the quest for regulation' is being organised by the mayor of Amsterdam to address this challenge. The primary goal of the conference is to delve into the potential solutions that further regulation of the drug market can offer, focusing not on whether but on how it can be implemented. The aim is to identify practical steps towards a more realistic approach to drug policy. Scheduled for January 26, 2024, the conference will be hosted at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

    Reclaiming Energy “Green” Multinationals have hijacked the Energy Transition - Public Power can save it.

    The planet is likely to surpass the 1.5C global warming threshold. At the same time, Bloomberg New Energy Finance has recently stated that “the outlook for energy transition (looks) extremely bright.” What’s going wrong? This webinar will expose the business models of “green” multinationals, alongside the private market model that underpins them. Join us, and find out how these companies are wrecking the climate and preventing policy makers, social movements and communities from building real solutions: public power systems that can democratically decarbonise society. Sign up for a far-reaching discussion about critical Energy Transition analyses and social movement developments.
