Inequality in 2021, slowing down, learning from Finland, and choosing which science to follow

Updated: Feb 1

Last week we had the great honour of hosting a talk and discussion from Professor Danny Dorling entitled Inequality in 2021, slowing down, learning from Finland, and choosing which science to follow.


Danny is a Geographer at the University of Oxford, in 2021 he is publishing the paper back of “Slowdown: The End of the Great Acceleration—and Why It’s Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our Lives; and with Annika Koljonen. In 2020 he published: "Finntopia: what we can learn from the world’s happiest country”


Danny's talk focused on key findings from these two books, and touched on current UK government policy and the problems that come from trying to chose what science to follow when you follow the science. You can find out more about Danny's work on his website.


The full recording of the talk is available to watch below - our huge thanks are extended to Professor Dorling for this incredibly insightful talk and engaging discussion!

Note The intro to Danny's talk was unfortunately not recorded, so apologies for the abrupt start to the recording!
