What is Ecosocialism?

Capitalism relies on a system of relationships that is inherently exploitative of our ecology as well as our relationship to our ecology, and this cannot be repaired so long as capitalism continues its profit-based logic. This is the basis of ecosocialism: to reclaim our common goods and break the hold of capitalist logic in the way we organize our societies.

The two campaigns we are working on both contribute to this fight: Public Power NY seeks to reclaim energy as a public good and reorient the energy system as a vehicle for transforming our society by investing in resiliency and equity. Green New Deal aims for a radical expansion of public goods in the US, through which we can break the cycle of the climate-changing economy and power structure.
