Sustainable Otautahi Christchurch Notices: 2 February 2017

Prosperity without Growth

Public Lecture in Christchurch - add it to your diary. It is not often that an economics text becomes a best-seller, but when it was first published in 2009, Professor Tim Jackson’s "Prosperity without Growth" did just that.

Jackson’s widely acclaimed challenge to conventional economics questioned the assumption of continued pursuit of economic growth and demonstrated that alternative more sustainable development paths are possible.

Seven years later Tim Jackson will give a free, lunch time public lecture hosted by the University of Canterbury - on the occasion of the launch of the revised 2nd edition of "Prosperity without Growth".

Date and Time: 17th February 2017, from noon
Location: The Piano (Armagh Street)
