Bristol Schumacher Conference 2009: From the ashes of the crash - Rebuilding with the new economics

Received this from the Schumacher Society:

Following on from the success of last year's Bristol Schumacher Conference, LESS IS MORE Can We Really Live Better By Consuming Less? chaired byJonathon Porritt, this year we are partnering with the New Economics Foundation (nef) and keeping a similar format - three lectures and 2x four workshops.


The Conference will take place at the Council House on Saturday 17 October 2009 - some details are below.


It is advisable to book in advance as last year was sold out before the day.


We would be most grateful if you could forward this email and attached leaflet to any contacts you think might be interested.
