‘Is the Green Movement its own worst enemy?’

With the effective standing of FoE and MARINET in mind, our readers and members may well wish to attend a lecture by Jonathon Porritt, one time director of Friends of the Earth, currently Founder Director of the Forum for the Future.

The green economy, resource efficiency, low-carbon growth, natural capital; the decaying sea and it’s shoreline there is no doubt that many of the Green Movement’s central precepts have entered into the political mainstream. But engagement and redressing by leading political parties remains woefully superficial — so to what extent is that down to the Green Movement itself?

Jonathon’s presentation addressing this concern is entitled ‘Is the Green Movement its own worst enemy?’ It forms the Blakie lecture hosted by UEA’s School of International Development, to be held in the Thomas Paine Study Centre lecture theatre at the University of East Anglia on Tuesday 22nd July at 6.30pm.
The lecture is free, and will be followed by a drinks reception. To reserve a place please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required.
