Venue Bristol City Hall (AKA Council House)
Beyond Sustainability – Towards a Regenerative Economy
For 25 years sustainable development has been held up as the solution to the world’s problems. But instead we have had ever more pollution, biodiversity loss and climate change. Sustainability has been abused like few other terms in history. It is time to think not just about sustaining the world’s badly damaged ecosystems and human communities, but about regenerating them instead.
The Schumacher Lectures on 15th June are aiming to map out steps towards regenerative development – in the context of climate change, urban futures, environmental policy and new approaches to ethics in a deeply materialist world.
Our speakers are among those leading this movement – cities expert Herbert Girardet; Satish Kumar – editor of Resurgence; Jane Davidson, former Welsh environment minister; Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement; Mary Clear of Incredible Edible Todmorden; European planner Michael Schwarze-Rodrian and Carbon Coach Dave Hampton.
