London 13 May 2019

In their book ‘The Economics of Arrival: ideas for a grown up economy’, Dr Katherine Trebeck and Jeremy Williams suggest that growth leads to a point of ‘arrival’, where the work of growth is done and its continued pursuit brings mounting harm. New priorities emerge—a shift from acquiring more to making ourselves at home with what we already have. Join the authors for a short presentation, followed by a discussion on the legitimacy of growth with Tim Jackson and Irene Guijt.
