BONUS EPISODE: Will the world end its addiction to growth? With the Club of Rome


In 1972, the Club of Rome published The Limits to Growth report: a groundbreaking paper on the extent to which the earth’s natural resources can support the rate of industrialization and population growth.

Now, 50 years later, we are looking at the impact of this report, and what is happening, in creating a new social and economic paradigm that will help the world’s people live in harmony with their environment.

New statesmanJoining Environment Editor Philippa Nuttall in Brussels is Keith Raworth, the economist who coined the concept of the “doughnut economy”; Tim Jackson, British economist at the University of Surrey; and Sandrine Dixon-Deklev, co-president of the Club of Rome.

This special edition of the World Review is produced with the support of the Club of Rome and the BMW Foundation.
