The Henry George Foundation presents five guest speakers who will explore the connections between economic justice and the environment in Henry George’s political and economic thought.

Continuing theFoundation’s dialogue with the most pressing contemporary issues, the speakers will reflect on the need to create sustainable and fair ways of life in modern societies.

 The Open Day will be an opportunity to address questions such as:

How should we reconcile George’s insight into economic justice, with the new threat of environmental catastrophe?

Should Georgists support policies such as a Green New Deal?

Would George adapt his message to answer our environmental and economic crises?

The Foundation’s Hon President,  David Triggs, will chair the event and introduce the speakers.
