The Real Deal: A Scottish Green New Deal - In conversation with Katherine Trebeck
7 November 2019 (13:30 - 16:00)
Club Room, City Halls Glasgow, Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1NQ
As part of the EDAS Inclusive Growth Community of Practice (CoP), we're looking forward to this Q&A session with Dr Katherine Trebeck, Policy and Knowledge Lead for Wellbeing Economy Alliance and renown author of Tackling Timorous Economics: How Scotland's Economy Could Work Better for Us All. The topics of discussion will be focusing on the Green New Deal.
In the wake of the First Minister's Climate Emergency declaration, is a Green New Deal the solution to transforming our economy? Join guest speaker, Dr Katherine Trebeck, to discuss a Scottish Green New Deal and what this means in practice.
Katherine will also draw upon her most recent book, The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a Grown-Up Economy, which suggests a move away from economic expansion toward economic inclusion. Creating an economy that delivers quality rather than quantity—an economy for everyone.
The event is the next in EDAS' Inclusive Growth Community of Practice (CoP) series. More information on the Inclusive Growth Community of Practice can be found at www.inclusivegrowthcommunityofpractice.blog
This event is free to EDAS members (Join EDAS today) and £25+VAT for non members.
