Small is Powerful : E.F. Schumacher’s ideas in the 21st century

Share

How have E.F. Schumacher’s ideas been translated into action for sustainability in the 21st century?

Bristol Green Capital Partnership member, The Schumacher Institute, invite you to join a day of talks on Saturday 20th June designed to inspire you with practical examples of sustainable change – covering topics from global poverty and economic injustice to appropriate technologies, sustainable agriculture and transformative learning.

Designed to leave attendees inspired with stories of success, as well as aware of challenges to come, you will hear from well-known speakers and organisations including; Satish Kumar (Resurgence Magazine), Helen Browning (Soil Association), Graham Randles (New Economics Foundation), Margaret Gardner (Practical Action), Adrian Ramsay (Centre for Alternative Technology) and Jonathan Dawson (Schumacher College).

Guest speakers are:

Adam Lent, Senior European Director for Research and Innovation at Ashoka, who will share thoughts from his book Small is Powerful: Why the era of big government, big business and big culture is over (and why it’s a good thing). (Due for publication in late 2015).

Helena Norberg-Hodge, Alternative Nobel Prize winner and pioneer of the worldwide localization movement, will explore the need for human-scale economies and the steps – at the community, national, and international levels – that can bring us there in a talk entitled From Gandhi and Schumacher to Russell Brand.

Local organisations are invited to have a stall at the event – e-mail emmelie@schumacherinstitute.org.uk for more information.
