Poverty need not mean destitution; it can be described as people being excluded from what others take for granted, such as decent living conditions. In this talk we will look at the extent of poverty both in the UK (homelessness, food banks, etc) and globally. We will also examine the consequences of poverty and its causes (which are not just a matter of inequality). And we will argue that the world can produce enough goods and services for poverty to be completely unnecessary.
Everyone welcome – bring a friend!
