House of Commons, Monday 28 Nov 2016 | 6.30-8.30pm
The APPG on the Limits to Growth has launched a landmark debate in the Houses of Parliament. In a world of environmental and social limits, is there still a role for economic growth in delivering a sustainable prosperity? We are particularly pleased to be joined for this debate by Federico Demaria (co-editor of Degrowth – A vocabulary for a new era), Graeme Maxton (Secretary General of the Club of Rome), Jørgen Randers (co-author of the 1972 Limits to Growth study), and Kate Raworth (author of Doughnut Economics). The debate will be chaired by Caroline Lucas, MP.
