Today's mainstream economy: We depend on a global financial industrial system with immense productive capacity, but it is hitting the physical limits of the earth’s systems - climate change looms, allocation of resources is very unequal, dissent is growing.
The good news: Many people are already exploring alternative ways of living and organising which offer other possible futures. What could the future look like for money, business, ownership, cities, in an economy fit for people and planet?
The event is for anyone interested in how we move towards a fair economy bounded by the reality of a finite planet.
Confirmed speakers include: Dan O’Neil - Post Growth Institute, Kate Raworth - Oxford University Environmental Change Institute, Ed Mayo – Cooperatives UK, James Vaccaro - Triodos, Tony Greenham - New Economics Foundation, Molly Scott Cato - MEP, Jeremy Leggett - Solar Century, Constance Laisné - Altgen Youth Coop, Ciaran Mundy - The Bristol Pound, Jules Peck - Real Economy Lab.
