The first meeting, on 12 Sept, will be introduced by Matt Sisson with the provisional title:
Growth and the efficiency question
Matt says: “I propose to look briefly at the ways our economy and financial systems are arranged, that requires ever more growth in order to achieve stability. I’ll then refocus for a related discussion on the national and global pursuit of ‘efficiency’ – Why I think it’s not just pointless but counter-productive to any efforts to live sustainably, and what the alternatives might be.”
On 26th September we have a Friday Room Special:
A Conversation with Ruth Lister
The starting point will be “The Open Tribe”, an idea developed in a series of interviews with Sue Goss, who has since published a book with this title.
Further meetings are planned at fortnightly intervals and suggestions for topics would be very welcome.
