Going Going

Going Going

by Judith Bromley


Jon C. Lovett, Chair of Global Challenges at Leeds University, will talk for 40 minutes, followed by questions and conversation, in the conference room. Technological advances in renewable energy and manufacturing offer the possibility of developing a circular economy within which we retain the many advantages of modern life, without destroying the world, and creating 'Green Jobs' at the same time. The talk will explore the concept of institutional economics and the theory introduced by Harvard 'business guru' Michael Porter on the role of environmental regulation stimulating innovation and competitiveness. This event is part of Swarthmoor Hall's summer art exhibition 'Seeking Routes' ,organised in collaboration with Quaker Arts Network
