This article on Labour List examines what we can learn from Angola’s efforts to rebuild its society, following decades of civil war, in helping us in the UK change our society and economy so that we can avert climate catastrophe.
“Imagine if local communities could set the priorities, visions and goals for how they might reduce climate change along with the government. Sound idealistic?

We are talking about the African state of Angola, emerging from over three decades of civil war.”
