 The Post Growth Project: The Regional Dimension

Wednesday 11 February 2015: 18.00 – 20.00

The university website introduces the event:

“As economic growth continues to be heralded as the cure for all financial and other woes by mainstream politicians, business leaders and media commentators, outside the mainstream the realization that such growth is in fact not the solution but the opposite is beginning to gain real traction in many arenas. The idea that we are about to enter a post-growth world has acquired credibility for those who acknowledge that there are ecological limits to growth.

“The world after growth offers real opportunities to realize a number of universals that have struggled to become realities – equality, justice, peace, prosperity, environmental sustainability, respect and the principle of hope. These universals are no longer the dreams of political radicals but realistic and necessary conditions for a better world. Green House’s new book, The Post-Growth Project, shows how it can be done initiating vibrant and alternative avenues for enquiry, critique and policy development”.

Speakers
