Event description

Description

The idea of building ‘an economy that works for all’ has an almost universal appeal. Its roots can be traced to a call made fifty years ago by Senator Robert F Kennedy (RFK) to address the ‘poverty of satisfaction, dignity and purpose that afflicts us all’. But what does it mean in practice for an advanced economy today, ten years after the financial crisis, faced with imminent climate change, persistent inequality, and continuing economic fragilities? Our fourth Nature of Prosperity dialogue addresses this challenge and teases out some of its most pressing policy implications.

We’re delighted to be joined in Westminster by Kerry Kennedy, US human rights lawyer and daughter of RFK, Clive Lewis MP, Shadow Treasury Minister, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive of the New Economics Foundation, Michael Jacobs, Director of the IPPR Commission on Economic Justice, and Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury.

+++ UPDATE: The timing for the event changed, in order to accommodate unforeseen changes in our speakers’ schedules. The event will begin with light refreshments at 11.30am. The first podium session — with Kerry Kennedy and Clive Lewis MP — will begin at 12 o’clock. We will provide a light lunch for all participants at 1.30pm. The event will close with a drinks reception, from 5pm.

A detailed outline of the programme will follow shortly.

The event is free of charge. For enquiries, please contact us with events@cusp.ac.uk.
