‘How to Save the Planet: Degrowth vs Green Growth?’
Film and Discussion
Wed 24 May 7.30pm at RISC, RG1 4PS
How do we secure a thriving future for humanity and the rest of the living world? Green growth and degrowth proponents take very different stances but they agree that changing the current economic growth model is necessary.
In this video Prof. Samuel Fankhauser and Prof. Jason Hickel went head to head on one of the biggest questions of our time and gave us an interesting introduction for a discussion. The discussion, in small groups with feedback at the end, ranged from criticism of growth to those pressing for urgent action to curb growth. The contributions were lively and the small group format encouraged more to share their views.
