Sustainability Lecture by Craig Bennett, Chief Executive Officer, Friends of the Earth

“You can’t stop progress” is the lazy heckle sometimes directed at environmentalists. But what is “progress”? As a species, how are we really doing and where should we be going next? In this lecture, Craig Bennett will look at the evolution of the concept of “progress”. What does it mean, what should it mean, and what should “progress” really look like this century? Might modern positive environmentalism represent real progress? In which case, who are the real enemies of progress? And critically what role for universities and business schools?

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Windsor Building Foyer.
