Why do more equal societies do better?

Saturday 1 December, 2-4pm.

Clissold House, Clissold Park, Stoke Newington Church Street, London N16 9HJ

An interactive and thought-provoking workshop led by Martin Wilkinson. The workshop is based on the groundbreaking books by Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson: The Spirit Level and The Inner Level. These books, based on years of research and hard evidence, show that almost everything, from life expectancy to depression levels, violence to illiteracy – is affected, not by how wealthy a society is, but how equal it is and that societies with a bigger gap between rich and poor are bad for everyone in them – including the well-off.

The Spirit Level has been heralded as providing a new way of thinking about ourselves and our communities. This workshop could change the way you see the world. We will be looking at how we can find positive solutions and move towards a happier, fairer future.

Refreshments from 1.30pm.
