Why Greater Equality is a Key to Sustainability, UK

27-11-2014 - 27-11-2014
Thursday 27 November 2014 17:00 to 18:30 
Richmond Lecture Theatre, University of Sussex

Reducing carbon emissions is frequently rejected because it is seen as an unwelcome belt-tightening exercise. But, by making more fundamental changes, we could improve the real quality of life in ways which would also help us achieve sustainability.

In this Sussex Development Lecture, Richard Wilkinson will start with a reminder that, after the early stages of economic growth, there is a pattern of sharply diminishing returns to well-being from rising average material standards. At the same time, the evidence on health and happiness suggests that if rich countries are to make further advances in the real quality of life, they must address people's social needs and improve the quality of the social environment.
