Limits to Growth or Opportunities for Prosperity? | APPG Launch Event

On 19th April 2016, we held our inaugural event Limits to Growth or Opportunities for Prosperity? at the House of Commons, with current Co-Chair of the Club of Rome, Anders Wijkman, as our keynote speaker. The event also marked the launch of Limits Revisited – a new review of the limits debate commissioned specifically for the APPG.

Many thanks to all those who supported our launch. It was wonderful to see so many people keen to participate in the debate. We look forward to engaging with you again at future events.
