Green and Just? Inclusive Sustainability – because people matter.

Providing a platform for a variety of voices, this Schumacher Institute 
Futures Conference will challenge attendees with the realities of the lack 
of local, national and global representation in the environmental 
movement and the associated issues. The scale and complexity of 
sustainability problems means solutions need to draw upon a truly diverse 
range of knowledge, needs and perspectives. 
 
Speakers include: 
 
 Kat Wall: As a member of the Social Policy Team at the New 
Economics Foundation, Kat is involved with the Towards a New 
Social Settlement project. Working in partnership with Oxfam, this 
initiative is examining the future of our welfare system, the natural 
environment it relies on and the people it serves. 
 
 Dr Sue Porter: With a background in social work, social policy and 
practice development, Sue has recently been working on Walking 
Interconnections – an AHRC funded research project that reflects 
on the voice of disabled people reflecting on environmental 
concerns. 
 
 Marvin Rees: Marvin works in public health, has a background 
working with international development organisations, with 
political activists in the US and UK and as a BBC journalist and 
radio presenter. He may also be known to many as the runner-up in 
Bristol’s first mayoral election. 
 
 Chris Sunderland: Chris is a founding director of the Bristol Pound 
and has worked with a number of food growing projects in the city 
that deliberately attempt to cross cultures. He is currently 
responsible for ‘Real Economy’- a project designed to bring fresh, 
healthy food to areas of high unemployment and little choice in 
food retail. 
 
 
 
NB: This conference has a standard ticket price with the option to 
donate what you feel is appropriate for the event and your 
circumstances.
