Lecture by Tim Jackson: Prosperity for a Finite Planet

Date & Time

START: 7:00 PM April 24, 2014
END: 8:30 PM April 24, 2014

Description

Join the Architectural League NY for an evening with British ecological economist Tim Jackson, who will speak about the shifting paths for achieving prosperity in our lives. While economic growth was once essential in reaching our current level of development, perhaps continued growth not only sees diminishing returns, but also detracts from our present happiness and future prosperity. In a world with finite ecological limits, how do we make what we need, get it to the people who need it, and nurture what we already have?

A conversation with New York Times journalist Eduardo Porter will follow Jackson’s talk.

Tickets are free for League members; $10 for non-members. Members may reserve a ticket by e-mailing: [email protected] Member tickets will be held at the check-in desk; unclaimed tickets will be released fifteen minutes after the start of the program. Non-members may purchase tickets here until 5:00 p.m. on April 24.
