Is sustainable growth a contradiction in terms or is it the only realistic pathway? Could it be neither or both of these? Is economic growth really incompatible with decreasing carbon emissions and environmental burdens? Are we driving growth, or is it driving us? What does questioning growth imply for modern societies and mainstream economics? When can enough be enough; for people, organisations and nations?
- Presentation by Julia Steinberger Julia is a physicist by training, and now a lecturer in ecoligical economics at the Sustainability Research Institute of the University of Leeds. She researchers the resource requirements of human and economic development, and how we might do more with less.
- Up to two further very short presentations.
- Followed by Q&A (30 mins)
- Refreshments and chat
All welcome.The event will bring together people from across the university, Lancaster city and the local area, so that the question can be explored from fresh angles in a lively but relaxed setting.
