One of the ways we would like to honour the memory of Jeanette Fitzsimons is to continue her work in promoting an Economy of Enough. From her maiden speech in Parliament Jeanette talked about this idea and continued to raise consciousness about its benefits long after she left politics.
The idea is catching on and scholars have now provided various models about how such a new economy could actually work. Our Climate Declaration has planned a series of webinars on this topic and would like to invite you to participate.
The attached flyer provides some details of the first webinar. More details below:
DATE: 12th AUGUST
ZOOM URL: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87431094625
Meeting ID: 874 3109 4625
RSVP: Please let us know if you can attend this discussion by sending an email to [email protected]
The first webinar will feature a short video by Kate Raworth, author of The Doughnut Economy. Here is a preview.
The discussion will be led by Lucie Greenwood, who wrote a recent Newsroom article “Designs for a sane economy after Covid-19”
Some questions to consider from viewing these presentations:
1. Why are these ideas important?
2. What are the implications of these ideas?
3. What can we do about this situation?
Please join us for a discussion of how to promote a sustainable wellbeing economy for everyone.
