Talk by Prof Jules Pretty Thursday 31 October 7.30 – 9.30pm

This month instead of our usual Transition Drinks we decided to go to a talk by Professor Jules Pretty at the new library Forum.

The website describing the talk states ” A greener world economy isn’t just better for the planet, it could also make us happier, argues Jules Pretty OBE, Professor of Environment and Society University of Essex.”. His website lists a number of books he authored and the research completed – it promises to be an interesting talk so looking forward to seeing you there.
