Saturday June 18th at 11am: Why Everything’s Wrong and How to Make it Better
The growing recognition of the negative impact in the UK of the chasm between those who own the wealth and the rest of us owes much to the research and writing of the University of Oxford’s Professor of Social Geography Danny Dorling, author of ‘Inequality and the 1%’. Since 2008, that 1% has grown considerably richer. Danny Dorling asks what the 1% has ever done for us, if we can actually afford them?, and explains how to take part in a slow revolution towards more equitable living.
