Transition demands a fresh narrative for our economic life. Oxford economist Kate Raworth has offered the Doughnut model for our enlightenment and Martin Roach will lead a discussion on how we could apply this in the Cambridge context.
Since the neo-liberal narrative is so powerful and deeply rooted in western economies it is helpful to know that change is afoot at a high level. The Wellbeing Economy Governments (WeGo) are questioning the wisdom of growth culture and this ten minute TED talk by Nicola Sturgeon sets the scene for our Cafe evening. There is no obligation to watch the video but it can provide a helpful perspective.
This is a free event.
