For more than 30 years, Tim has been a leading voice in international discussions on sustainability. Furthermore, he has worked with the United Nations, the UK Government, the European Commission, and various foundations to examine sustainability’s economic and social aspects. In the 90s, he created the notion of preventative environmental management, a vital principle of the circular economy.

Above all, Tim offers in it a bold vision of a society that prioritizes connection and purpose over the pursuit of profit and power. The book serves as both a call for systemic change and a call to reconsider our fundamental beliefs about human nature.
Join bestselling author Tim Jackson as he discusses his groundbreaking book "Post Growth: Life After Capitalism." In this thought-provoking talk, Tim will delve into the ways in which capitalism has led to environmental devastation, economic inequality, and financial instability, and will present a vision for a society that prioritizes connection and purpose over the pursuit of profit and power. This is a must-see speech for anyone interested in exploring alternative economic models and reimagining the future of our world.
This talk is based on Tim Jackson's bestselling book, "Prosperity Without Growth". It is a comprehensive examination of the issues surrounding economic growth and sustainability. Originally published in 2009 as a report to the UK government, the book quickly became a key work in the field, translated into 17 languages and sparking widespread debate. In this revised and expanded edition, Jackson argues that building a "post-growth" economy is a feasible and important task, outlining the key principles that should guide this transformation. He discusses the nature of enterprise, the quality of work, the structure of investment, and the role of money in creating a more sustainable and equitable economy. Now, more than a decade after its initial publication, "Prosperity Without Growth" is seen as a crucial roadmap for addressing the pressing challenges of our time.
Tim Jackson's work on the circular economy dates back to the 1990s, when he was employed by the Stockholm Environment Institute to explore the concept of preventive environmental management. This approach, based on the principle that prevention is better than cure, advocates for the redesign of industrial systems to minimize waste and environmental harm. Jackson's 1993 book "Clean Production Strategies" and his 1996 book "Material Concerns" both argue for a shift away from a linear, extractive model of production towards a circular economy. The latter book also includes a chapter on the relationship between human well-being and economic growth. Today, the circular economy is a widely recognized concept, but Jackson's early contributions to the field continue to be influential. In this talk, Tim will talk about the evolution of the concept and the future of the circular economy.
