Mon 28 November 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
The University of Suffolk in partnership with the East Suffolk Green Print Forum is delighted to welcome you to a public lecture as part of our Sustainable Futures Series. This event will gently explore some of the thinking associated with Steady State/Sustainable Prosperity Economics and the challenges of continued economic growth whilst living within the earth’s environmental limits and ensuring strong, healthy and just societies.
Our speaker for this event is the world renowned and highly regarded environmentalist Professor Tim O’Riordan OBE, FBA. Tim is an Emeritus Professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia and in recognition for his contribution to academia and society received an OBE in 2010. He is also Deputy Lieutenant of the County of Norfolk, having served as Sheriff of Norwich in 2009-10.
Widely published, he has led two international research projects on the transition to sustainability in the European Union (1995-2002) and will be familiar to undergraduates and practioners through his essential textbook ‘Environmental Science for Environmental Management’ and his contribution as Executive Editor of the popular journal based Environment Magazine.
A European Advisor to the UK Sustainable Development Commission, a core member of the Prince of
Wales' seminar on Business and the Environment, a board member on the Corporate Responsibility Body for Asda plc, and a driving force on the Growth and Climate Change Panel for Anglian Water Group; Tim’s unique understanding of the issues surrounding sustainable development and how they translates to potential growth make him as accessible to the parishioner as the EU Commissioner! Please do join us for what will be a fascinating and thought provoking evening.
Free refreshments will be available for all attendees
