Speaking Truth to Power: Films for a Finite World hosted by the Lili project

June 21, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:15 pm

Free

The *Lili  project’s free  film series, ‘Speaking Truth to Power:  Films for a Finite World’, restarts next week with the film ‘Minimalism: a Documentary About the Important Things’.

The Living Well Within Limits (LiLi) project is a Leverhulme Research Leadership Grant awarded to Dr Julia Steinberger. LiLi addresses crucial but understudied questions:  What are the biophysical resources, more specifically energy, required to achieve human well-being? What influence do social and technical provisioning systems have on the levels of resource use associated with well-being? If remaining within planetary boundaries requires rapid decreases in resource & energy use, how could these scarce resources best be employed to enhance and preserve well-being?

Co-hosted with SRI, the film will be shown at 4.30pm on Wednesday 21/06/2017 in Seminar room 1.15, Business School (Maurice Keyworth) and will be followed by a discussion. We should be finished around 6.15pm.
