Event Description

BLUE DOT ECONOMICS Rethinking Economics for a
Healthy Environment
David Suzuki and Peter Victor in conversation with special guests
October 1st 2015
7-10 pm
Canada’s most trusted influencer, geneticist and broadcaster, David Suzuki, has spent a career raising awareness of environmental issues. Economist Peter Victor, author of Managing Without Growth, has spent over 40 years working on environmental problems and is one of the founders of ecological economics. Both believe economics needs rethinking. These two influential thinkers will exchange views on what ecologists and economists need to learn from each other in order to come to a truly ecological economics that illuminates how human wellbeing can be secured within the planet’s limits.
To explore what ecological economics means on the ground, David and Peter will be joined by special guests Andrea Reimer, Tamara Vrooman & Merran Smith and Miles G. Richardson.
The evening will also include entertainment by Deanna Knight,
musical guests & Vancouver’s Hot Club of Mars.
Join the conversation about what ecological economics can do to protect the people and places we love.
DOORS OPEN at 6:00 pm
