Never-ending economic growth is not possible on a finite planet; nor is it improving well-being. This conference brought together NGOs, academics, businesses, politicians, the media, and the general public to explore an ecologically and socially responsible alternative to economic growth: the steady state economy.

Keynote presentations included:

  • Peter Victor, Professor in Environmental Studies, York University, Canada
  • Andrew Simms, Policy Director, New Economics Foundation
  • Dan O’Neill, European Director, Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy
  • Tim Jackson, Professor of Sustainable Development, University of Surrey (video)

In addition, critical issues were addressed in ten interactive workshops.  Workshop speakers included Kate Pickett (co-author of The Spirit Level), Franny Armstrong (Director of The Age of Stupid), Roger Martin (Chair of the Optimum Population Trust), Molly Scott Cato (Economics Speaker for the Green Party), David Fell (Director at Brook Lyndhurst), among others.
