4th Nature of Prosperity Dialogue —
Measuring progress; Redefining purpose

Save the Date
London, 24 October 2018, 1-6pm

Fifty years ago this year, shortly before his assassination, Robert Kennedy called for an ‘honest confrontation’ with the ‘poverty of satisfaction, dignity and purpose that afflicts us all’. His call remains unfulfilled, but his speech on the social and environmental limitations of the GDP has inspired innumerable efforts to redefine both the meaning of prosperity and its proper measurement. Ten years after the financial crisis, these efforts are more relevant than ever.

Confirmed speakers at our fourth Nature of Prosperity event include Kerry Kennedy, human rights lawyer and daughter of RFK, Clive Lewis, Shadow Treasury Minister, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive at the New Economics Foundation, and Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury.

About

The Nature of Prosperity is a series of public debates chaired by Baron Rowan Williams, engaging young and old alike across business, policy and civil society in one of the most vital questions of our time: what does prosperity mean in a world of environmental and social limits?
