Neva Goodwin and Stewart Wallis in conversation

In celebration of 40 years of the Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures, and in anticipation of the October 25, 2020 Lectures, we are highlighting the work of past speakers, asking for updates of their earlier remarks, and inviting them to reflect on current conditions.

On Thursday, September 10 at 2pm Eastern, Neva Goodwin and Stewart Wallis will engage in a virtual conversation on Zoom moderated by Alice Maggio. They will reflect on their original talks given current political, economic, and social realities and will then comment on each other’s work. Registration is free. A question and answer period with participants will follow initial presentations. If you are unable to attend, a recording of the event will be available.
