Green and Just? Inclusive sustainability – because people matter

Where: The Park, Knowle, BS4 1DQ
Price: £21.85 Standard ticket price, option to donate more (To Book: Click Here)

Help us to open up new dialogues about how sustainability action can challenge marginalisation and exclusion.

As environmental and social crises begin to hit home, there is a need for renewed emphasis on social justice in sustainability. Providing a platform for a variety of voices, this Schumacher Institute Futures Conference will explore the pressing issues of inclusion and sustainability.

The scale and complexity of sustainability problems means solutions need to draw upon the widest possible base of knowledge and experience; a truly representative range of needs and perspectives need to be taken into account.

Speakers include:

•    Dr Sue Porter: With a background in social work, social policy and practice development, Sue has recently been working on Walking Interconnections – an AHRC funded research project that reflects on the voice of disabled people reflecting on environmental concerns.

•    Marvin Rees: Marvin works in public health, has a background working with international development organisations, with political activists in the US and UK and as a BBC journalist and radio presenter. He may also be known to many as the runner-up in Bristol’s first mayoral election.

•    Chris Sunderland: Chris is a founding director of the Bristol Pound and has worked with a number of food growing projects in the city that deliberately attempt to cross cultures. He is currently responsible for ‘Real Economy’- a project designed to bring fresh, healthy food to areas of high unemployment and little choice in food retail.
