Description

This event is a part of the Festival of Debate: www.festivalofdebate.com

Globally, economic growth is credited with reducing poverty and improving health. However, this growth is based on an ever-increasing demand which requires expanding the use of Earth’s limited natural resources. Should society aim to reduce the size of the economy and the related demand for natural resources? Or should society prioritize economic growth using sustainable means?

Speakers:
Professor John Barry, Professor at Queen’s University Belfast (Former Leader of Green Party, Northern Ireland) Alberto Huerta Morales, Aalborg University, Denmark
Dr. Yannish Naik, Senior Policy Fellow, The Health Foundation
