important free event, flyer attached,
please forward to anyone who may be interested; apologoes for any cross-posting

Making wellbeing and sustainability possible:

Transforming Scotland’s Economy
2.00 pm Saturday 17 May,
Methodist Halls, Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9JS
An economy that ensures our wellbeing and doesn’t jeopardise our environment or our future?
We have an economy which depends on growth which doesn’t make us happier, demands ever more resources and increases inequality

This event will look at some of the radical changes we need:
•    transformation of energy generation
•    exerting public controls over the direction of the economy
•    finance for sustainable development; banking rules which rein in excess and greed
•    much greater income equality and environmental justice

Expert speakers will share their thoughts on these topics followed by breakouts and open debate. Speakers include:
•    Katherine Trebeck, Oxfam Scotland
•    Professor Andy Cumbers, Glasgow University
•    Dave Watson, UNISON Scotland
•    Matthew Crighton, Friends of the Earth Scotland

The speaker panel will be followed by breakout groups and discussion on key topics.
