Event Details

Climate action cannot be radical enough without including economic systems change. This event, chaired by Caroline Lucas MP, will explore we can move away from the destructive dogma of GDP growth, towards an economy that has human wellbeing and the flourishing of the natural world at its heart.

Come along to hear from campaigners, practitioners and parliamentarians who are leading the transition to a new economy that puts people and the planet first – at local, national and international level. What does ‘system change not climate change’ really mean and how can people can get involved? How are alternatives to economics-as-usual already being implemented, such as doughnut economics, community wealth building, and the wellbeing economy?
