Location: GLOBE Theatre: MR 118/120
  • Climate Crisis
  • Sustainability as Strategy
  • Mobilizing Capital

It’s 2020 – can we finally confront the challenges inherent in capitalism? Speaking to the essence of sustainability in our modern age, don’t miss GLOBE’s pivotal debate on what growth means today.

Economics 101 tells us that growth is essential for a system to thrive, as do the billions of people living in poverty. Yet, there is little doubt that the overconsumption this system produces only perpetuates global environmental crises. Will propositions for ‘green growth’ and ‘degrowth’ as alternatives offer a better path? Where does ‘climate capitalism’ fit? Join us for an existential reality check:

  • Is there such a thing as sustainable growth? What does it look like and how do we measure it?
  • What opportunities for ‘good’ growth are being borne of the climate crisis?
  • What approaches are delivering a win-win outcome – the circular economy, a Green New Deal…?
  • What is the role of the GLOBE community in providing answers and a road map for ‘sustainable growth?’
