CIRCONOMÌA | Circular Economy Festival w Tim Jackson and Kerry Kennedy
24 and 25 May 2018
On 24 and 25 May 2018, Tim Jackson will be joining Kerry Kennedy, human rights lawyer and daughter of Robert Kennedy, for a series of dialogues on prosperity, inequality and human rights at the 3rd Circonomìa festival in Italy. Under the theme of “growth without prosperity, prosperity without growth”, Tim and Kerry will be discussing the legacy of Robert Kennedy’s historic speech at the University of Kansans on the failings of measurement and vision that, after 50 years, still haunt both economic policy and our everyday life. The conversation will be followed by a screening of Charles Guggenheim’s 1968 Oscar winning documentary Robert Kennedy Remembered.
CIRCONOMÌA is an Italian ‘polycentric’ festival. The country-wide four-day event is set out to closely link circular economy reflections to the dimension of local development. In its third year, the CIRCONOMÌA festival is held from 23-26 May 2018 in Turin, Milan, Alba, Bra-Pollenzo, and Novello (CN). Tim Jackson and Kerry will be joining the programme on 24 and 25 May 2018. For more information about the festival, please see the Circonomìa website.
