Mark E Thomas, author of the book 99%: Mass Impoverishment and How We Can End It, will talk about why we are now looking at the first generation in living memory that can expect to be poorer than their parents.
This is mass impoverishment in action and the result of political choices rather than cast-iron laws of economics.
He will show how we got into this mess, and how we can get out and he will show that the five key actions that we need to end mass impoverishment are precisely those we need to tackle climate change.
After the presentation, there will be a discussion and a workshop for participants. The evening will conclude with an opportunity for book signing at 9:30 pm.
