Rick Boven in Auckland – Global environmental trends

Global environmental trends will affect New Zealand’s future. In his forthcoming lecture to the Fabian Society, Rick Boven of the New Zealand Institute will summarise the high-level trends, identify implications for New Zealand, explain obstacles to an effective response and propose strategic priorities to reduce risks and take advantage of opportunities. Responsibilities and how to act will be presented for businesses, individuals, Government and NGOs.

The free Auckland lecture is on 28 February at 6pm at the Owen Glenn Business School, Auckland University, 10 Grafton Road and you can register here.

Paul Barber in Wellington – Let’s do something about income inequality

While the tents of the Occupy protesters may be moved on, the issues of income inequality will not be pushed to one side so easily. The backdrop of massive international social and economic disparities shape the context for the particular challenges we face in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Deputy Prime Minister Bill English has said that the important thing about income inequality is what we actually do about it. This lecture looks at our current situation and asks – what (if anything) is being done about inequality right now and what more we could do. Can we find a path to a social and political consensus on income inequality and what might that path look like?

Paul Barber from NZCSS will address this question in a lecture to the Fabian Society at 5:30pm at Connolly Hall, Guilford Terrace, on February 28th. You can register here.

    Isnt this outdated society the one that the Labour Party takes all its economic advice from.

    • McFlock 2.1

      If they did, the world would be a better place.

    • Te Reo Putake 2.2

      Outdated? This from a racist pillock who prefers the grasping economics of the 18th century and the social mores of the middle ages? You’re having a laugh, pal.
