Let's create an economic system that's fit for the 21st century
Monday May 20th May 1900-2100
Quaker Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, NR2 1EW
Chaired by Dr Teresa Belton, author of ‘Happier People Healthier Planet’, speakers include political economist Professor Richard Murphy and Dr Rupert Read, a philosopher and Green campaigner.
The speakers will challenge the fixed nature of today's system and discuss how our economy must be redesigned if we are to avoid the twin catastrophes of climate breakdown and species extinction. Recent, peaceful protest and campaigning by Extinction Rebellion campaign has made us all aware of the danger of the climate change that is resulting from human economic activity.
Quakers believe that we are all equal, and strive to live simple, peaceful lives. Materialism and greed drive our current economic model, yet neither makes us any happier. Join us for a thought provoking evening and discover how you perhaps can play a small part in creating a fairer, less damaging economy.
