A Better Politics with Danny Dorling

When: Thursday 12th January from 18:00 to 19:30

Where: Leeds Beckett University City Campus, Rose Bowl 241, Lecture Theatre A, Leeds. LS1 3HB

What: Leeds Beckett University welcomes back Danny Dorling to deliver the Annual Politics Lecture on ‘A Better Politics’, the subject of his most recent and highly acclaimed book. In an age of disillusionment with our political system and low levels of trust in politicians, the desire to define and realise a better politics is widely felt. And Danny’s conception of a better politics as ‘one that will enable future generations to be happier’ is surely of interest to us all. Danny’s approach is not utopian but based on evidence of what matters most in affecting people’s happiness. He argues that ‘there are many policies that we could adopt if we really want to be collectively happier and healthier. We could have a government that makes our lives happier, if we win the argument for it.’ So, come along and join the argument.
