Forum: Pathways to Planetary Health – Tim Jackson and Jonathan F. P. Rose on “Life After Capitalism”

On Wednesday June 2, 2021 join a conversation with award-winning economist and scholar Tim Jackson and Garrison Institute co-founder Jonathan F. P. Rose in conversation. The discussion will focus on imagining a world where the shifts in worldviews and systems changes we need for a viable future, redress the underlying cause of climate change, social inequity and financial instability: capitalism itself. Jackson explores that post-capitalist future in his forthcoming book, Post Growth: Life After Capitalism.

This interactive online event is part of a continuing series in the Garrison Institute’s Forum on Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH). Building on the Garrison Institute’s earlier Climate, Mind and Behavior (CMB) program, Pathways to Planetary Health explores the moral, ethical, and human behavioral dimensions of the search for regenerative solutions, including Half-Earth, Ecological Civilization, Regenerative Economics, and Societal Altruism.

This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Wednesday June 2, 2021. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of registration.

Speakers: 

Tim Jackson An ecological economist and professor of sustainable development at the UK’s University of Surrey, Jackson directs the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity, and served as Economics Commissioner with the UK’s Sustainable Development Commission. His previous book, Prosperity Without Growth: Foundations for the Economy of Tomorrow, analyzes how economic growth relates to environmental crises and social recession, and proposes a redefinition of prosperity aligned with well-being. Le Monde called it “”one of the most outstanding pieces of environmental economics literature in recent years.”

Jonathan F.P. Rose’s business, public policy, and not-for-profit work focus on creating a more environmentally, socially, and economically responsible world. Jonathan and his wife Diana Calthorpe Rose are the co-founders of the Garrison Institute. He serves on its Board and leads its Pathways to Planetary Health program.
