Based on Clive Lord's book Citizens' income and Green Econmics, this event is for those who do have stirrings of unease that we are not looking after the Planet as well as we ought. It is also for others who share concerns but who have chosen different paths and strategies. It is hoped that it will operate in tandem to find methods of measuring the economy better suited to green and progressive criteria than those in use since the end of the second world war.
This event will offer a new insight, based on the 'Deep Ecology' tenet that we should model society on people who live in harmony with their surroundings, and broaden this to more areas of society. It is assumed that economics will and should remain as part of the green and progressive and ecological decision making process, but that the current dominance of markets must cease.
At the office, encourage your colleagues to re-use the other side of paper and print less by archiving their emails and attachments. You can also try and create paperless habits.

On average each worker uses about 50 sheets of A4 per day. Must you print?
