For two decades green writers and economists and our own WMNEG have struggled with the meaning of ‘green’, ‘sustainable, or ‘zero’ economic growth. The chairman, Alan Clawley, will open discussion by reflecting on what some of these writers said and then ask us all to consider what positive impacts such a policy would have on our lives if it were adopted.

All points of view are welcome.


In 1994, people on the mailing list of the New Economics Foundation met and formed a regional group, WMNEG, which has for many years been independent of its parent. The group takes the term ‘new economics’ to mean economic activity that is designed to last and to meet people’s basic needs.

Alan Clawley was trained as an architect. He has lived in Birmingham for several decades where his work has involved providing technical support to a wide variety of community projects. He is the founder and secretary of Friends of the Central Library, a group which has been running a high profile campaign to save Madin’s Birmingham City Library from demolition.
