http://transitionnewmills.org/2015/06/08/agm-and-steady-state-manchester/Jane Ayers has asked me to alert members that Transition New Mills are doubling up thier Annual General Meeting this year with an event from Steady State Manchester (open to non-members). The event promises to be stimulating, engaging and fun.
Can we live well, with greater equity and within planetary limits? Steady State Manchester thinks we can. They will invite us to combine our knowledge and experiences to explore how we can achieve this and how we might get there.
Steady State Manchester believes an alternative approach to economic development is essential. They call this ‘viable economics’, making decisions in terms of a ‘Safe Operating Zone’ for humanity, which includes:
•Re-localising food and other production in and near to the city, providing decent green jobs and more income equality
•More money staying local and more control over savings and investment
•Targeting wealth towards energy efficient, affordable housing and investing in other local, green and ethical enterprises
•Taking away the focus from growth for growth’s sake.
For more detail, see their new report ‘The Viable Economy’: http://steadystatemanchester.net/our-reports.
The AGM will begin at 7.30pm, Monday 29 June at the Volunteer Centre, Union Road. We’ll keep it short and from 8pm or before, we move on to the session with Steady State Manchester. We’ll be out and finished by 9.30pm at the latest.
Entry is £3 (£1 low-waged) but is free to members of Transition New Mills. You will be able to join on the night – it’s currently £3-£10 depending on how much you feel you can afford.
