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.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer any more tickets at the moment. +++ The Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity still has tickets for the earlier part of the day (in a bigger venue): the 2nd Nature Of Prosperity dialogue and the book launch of Jørgen Randers’ and Graeme Maxton’s Reinventing Prosperity. For further details go to nature_of_prosperity.eventbrite.co.uk.
