Human consumption and economic growth are putting increased pressure on the Earth; our actions and policies are leading to climate disruption, loss of biodiversity, pollution, and unsustainable exploitation of natural resources.
We also know that consumption and economic growth do not bring happiness. How can we bring about cultural change to deliver genuine human wellbeing?
On 9th October, I will be part of a public lecture and panel discussion that confronts the contribution of consumer culture to the world’s environmental and social challenges. It examines how human values underpin these challenges, and how we can work with values to find pathways towards sustainable futures.
DATE: Thursday 9 October, 2014
