2011 Conference DVD

Just arrived: DVD with 4 hours of the best presentations from the Schumacher Centenary Festival – order now: £10 incl. post.

This most ambitious Schumacher event – to mark the Centenary of his birth – included poet Matt Harvey, Resurgence editor Satish Kumar, barrister Polly Higgins, Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, Triodos Bank CEO Peter Blom, the founder of 350.org Bill McKibben, Transition Town’s Rob Hopkins and author Professor Tim Jackson.

It was a totally inspiring day, and as Diana Schumacher said in her closing remarks, “We’ve had a green lawyer, a green politician and a green banker; if Fritz Schumacher was suspicious of any categories of people, I think you could count those three professions in – and I think he’d be absolutely delighted to hear this revolutionary stuff that’s coming out of the mouths of green bankers, lawyers and politicians.”
