In Autumn 2017, CUSP and the APPG on Limits to Growth hosted a debate to mark the 40th Anniversary of Fred Hirsch’s ‘The Social Limits to Growth’. More than 100 people joined us for this timely discussion on Hirsch’s challenging analysis and its relevance today. The panel discussion was chaired by Caroline Lucas MP and Tim Jackson, with speakers including Lord Robert Skidelsky, Professor Donald Hirsch (son of Fred Hirsch) and Professor Diane Coyle.

On Monday the 28th November 2016 we hosted Jørgen Randers, Kate Raworth, Federico Demaria and Graeme Maxton for an evening debate at the House of Commons, chaired by Caroline Lucas MP and Tim Jackson. More information on the event page.
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.
