When ecology meets economics…
A public talk based on the new book by renowned green economist Molly Scott Cato
15th November, 7:30pm
A strong local economy is important to sustainability, but how large is a local economy, how self-reliant can it be, and what resources will still need to be imported? A bioregional economy explores these questions while challenging the values of the current global economic system, putting people and locality before profit and growth. Join Cambridge Carbon Footprint and leading Green Economist Molly Scott Cato as she sets out a visionary account of what a bioregional approach to the economy would mean — and how to get there from here.
Molly Scott Cato is professor of Strategy and Sustainability at Roehampton University, Green Party spokesperson on economics and a Director of Transition Stroud.
