16 Taviton Street, room 347

With a diverse range of disruptive thinkers, the UCL Society for Global Prosperity is organising various events, from external speaker events & panel talks to collaborative change-campaigns with like-minded organisations, in attempt to spread awareness for humanity’s need to reconceive and redesign the socio-economic mechanisms exploiting people and the planet in the name of exponential growth.

Society for Global Prosperity’s Launch Event

The Society’s launch event is on the 19th of October on Wednesday, 19th October in Room 347, SSEES Building, Taviton Street, WC1H 0BW.

The symposium will explore the trends the ‘Limit to Growth’ report analysed fifty years ago and re-examine its conclusions in light of contemporary approaches and debates in order to identify how we can attempt to create a clear socio-economic framework for thriving within the limits of Planet Earth.

Professor Henrietta Moore (DBE) the Chair of Culture Philosophy and Design at UCL and the founding-Director of the Bartlett Institute for Global Prosperity and will start off the event with a presentation on the need for us to change the way we conceive and run our economies. This will then be followed by a panel discussion between Dr Angus Armstrong the Director of ESRC’s Rebuilding Macroeconomics network, Chief Economic Adviser to Lloyds Banking Group and former Head of Macroeconomic Analysis at HM Treasury and Dr Robert Constanza a Club of Rome member, Professor of Ecological Economics at UCL and Founder of the International Society of Ecological Economics.
