A series of round table events took place across the world, as the Manifesto was being drafted. The discussions helped to inform the writing of the Manifesto. Video, audio and reports from the round tables were featured in the Multimedia Manifesto. This section features all the reports, media and other information from the events.
The ‘Limits to Growth Forum’ brought together a series of expert speakers to address the inherent problems of our current economic system, and explore the possible alternatives for ‘beyond growth’ economics. Speakers included Andrew Simms (New Economics Forum), Caroline Lucas MP (Green Party), Prof Peter Victor (York University), Richard Wilkinson (author, “The Spirit Level”), Molly Scott Cato (Cardiff Institute for Co-operative Studies) and Prof Mary Mellor (Northumbria University). The forum was part of Green Week at the University of Sussex.
