The Green Renaissance

How to Rebuild the Global Economy

Join us once a month as we unpack the complex policy questions that will determine the fate of our economies, our societies, and our planet for decades to come. Featuring voices from government, business, civil society and youth groups, The Green Renaissance is an essential listen on the green recovery debate.



Episode One

An increasing number of policymakers, financiers and economists have joined the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in calling for a green recovery from COVID-19. But what does this actually mean? What obstacles will we have to overcome to implement this in practice? And has the global response to COVID-19 so far made our prospects of doing so more or less likely?

In Episode 1, we speak to Elliott Harris (Chief Economist of the United Nations), Jayati Ghosh (Executive Secretary of International Development Economics Associates) and Mercedes Pombo (Youth Leader of the Youth for Climate Movement) to answer these and other key questions as we look to unpack the green recovery debate.
