This issue of Ecología Política, entitled, “Nuevos Pactos Verdes. ¿solución o problema?», analyses the institutional Green New Deals (GND) and its approach to socio-environmental problems on the basis of green capitalism, which assumes the decoupling between economic growth and environmental impacts. These institutional GND are faced by social GND, which are built from different social movements and contemplate bottom-up optics to provide just socio-ecological transitions.
Reading this issue allows us to delve into the areas of dispute between the institutional and social GND, enriching the debate and taking in the need for an socio-ecological transition that promotes the protection of common goods, the reproduction and care of life, as well as the decolonization of the development agenda.
