Nature of Prosperity Dialogue | London
Mon 28 November 2016, 13:30 – 17:30 GMT
Book your seat for the second in our series of dialogues on the Nature of Prosperity, to be held on 28th November from 1.30 to 5.30 at Church House, Westminster, London SW1P 3NZ.
Since our first event in May this year, the challenges of achieving a sustainable prosperity have deepened; political and social divisions have widened; the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is under threat; and the world has become a more uncertain place. The need for a clear and workable vision of prosperity has become more urgent than ever.
For this second event, we have asked Baron Rowan Williams, chair of the dialogues, to set out his own vision for a lasting and inclusive prosperity and to reflect in particular on the role of hope in a changing and uncertain world. We are also delighted to welcome Jørgen Randers (co-author of the 1972 Limits to Growth study) and Graeme Maxton (Secretary General of the Club of Rome) who will present their new book on Reinventing Prosperity, which outlines “thirteen politically feasible proposals to improve our world”. You can read the first chapter on the Club of Rome website. The dialogue will be facilitated by by Dr Camilla Toulmin, British economist, Professor in Practice at Lancaster University and Chair of the CUSP Advisory Board.
