Conference description courtesy of the Future Planet Europe Conference website:
‘The European Union’s experiment in market economics and political bureaucracy is causing an increasing number of economic, social and environmental challenges.
So, what are the solutions? How can we create a better economic and environmental deal for Europe? How can we facilitate markets within which both people and environment can thrive? How can we create resilient societies that can reduce both waste and economic inequality? How can we combat climate change while also increasing the living standard of the poor?
At this conference, some of today’s most visionary thinkers and activists will share their thoughts on how we can—from the local to the global—solve some of these challenges and create a more sustainable and equitable society.‘
Speakers will include:
Erik S. Reinert
Economist, author of How Rich Countries Got Rich and Why Poor Countries Stay Poor
Founder/director of Local Futures
