PLS NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE: George Monbiot at the Galgael Trust
You are warmly invited to join us at the CHE and Govan Folk University for a talk and open salon with George Monbiot, who will be in Scotland to talk about his new book 'Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for an Age of Crisis'.

George is a Fellow of the Centre for Human Ecology, and his history with the CHE reaches back to the Edinburgh days in the 1990s. We are delighted to welcome George to Govan, and you for a rare opportunity to participate in an intimate knowledge exchange to discuss the big questions and what they mean for us in a community like Govan.

What does the good lifeand the good societylook like in the twenty-first century?

A toxic ideology rules the world  of extreme competition and individualism. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.

George Monbiot shows how new findings in psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology cast human nature in a radically different light: as the supreme altruists and cooperators. He shows how we can build on these findings to create a new politics: a politics of belonging. Both democracy and economic life can be radically reorganized from the bottom up, enabling us to take back control and overthrow the forces that have thwarted our ambitions for a better society.

Urgent, and passionate, Out of the Wreckage provides the hope and clarity required to change the world.

Doors open at 2pm, and there will be light refreshments prior to the start of the talk.

PLEASE NOTE: We want everyone who wants to come to be able to attend the talk, and there will be free tickets available for local community members at designated locations. If the ticket price would prevent you from coming, please drop us an email at info@che.ac.uk
