There has been a lot of debate from those that support the Green New Deal and those that are in opposition to the legislation. As a class we are going to look at the Green New Deal from the prospective of the business community. The question we are going to address – “Does the Green New Deal support our ideas of sustainable development?” In other words, “Should businesses that are involved with sustainable development support the Green New Deal?’. This has been debated by many, and now we will ask this same question in class. This assignment has 2 major components.
1. Discussion Post – You will need to do some research and identify;
5 points that support the idea that businesses that are involved with sustainable development should support the Green New Deal.
5 points that support the idea that businesses that are involved with sustainable development should not support the Green New Deal.
Your assessment to the question, “Should businesses that are involved with sustainable development support the Green New Deal?’”
Overall reasoning for your answer.
