A Scottish Green New Deal - With Katherine Trebeck 

In the wake of the First Minister's Climate Emergency declaration, is a Green New Deal the solution to transforming our economy? Join guest speaker, Dr Katherine Trebeck, to discuss a Scottish Green New Deal and what this means in practice.

Katherine will also draw upon her most recent book, The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a Grown-Up Economy, which suggests a move away from economic expansion toward economic inclusion. Creating an economy that delivers quality rather than quantity—an economy for everyone.

The event is the next in EDAS' Inclusive Growth Community of Practice (CoP) series.  More information on the Inclusive Growth Community of Practice can be found at www.inclusivegrowthcommunityofpractice.blog 

This event is free to EDAS members (Join EDAS today) and 25+VAT for non members.
