Economic Justice for All: What needs to be done to move to a greener, fairer, future?

Special Cafe Economique on Thursday 11th June 2009 from 6.30 pm

Thursday 11th June 2009, from 6.30 pm, at the Methodist Centre, Town Street, Chapel Allerton.

Please note this is a different venue and a different weekday, in relation to our usual meetings.

A number of the speakers at previous cafes are coming to discuss with us ways forward to a fairer, more eco-sustainable future.
The question for the evening will be: Economic Justice for All: What needs to be done to move to a greener, fairer, future?

We think a useful framework for this discussion is provided by Professor Tim Jackson, of the University of Surrey, in his report for the UK Sustainable Development Commission -
'Prosperity without Growth? The Transition to a Sustainable Economy'
There is a useful summary on pages 6 - 13. This includes 'Twelve Steps To a Sustainable Economy' which are listed below.

Because this is a special event, two years since we started the Cafe Economique, we plan to have a simple buffet supper from 6 30 pm. You, and any other interested people you know, are welcome to join us for this. As usual there is no charge for this event, but if you are planning to come, please let us know, to help with the catering arrangements..

Attached is a list of all our previous cafes with the names of the speakers and the topics.
We also attach a schedule for the evening, and a flier that you may wish to use to advertise the meeting to people you think may by interested.

We look forward to hearing that you will be able to join us on 11th June 2009.
