Presented by Professor Guy Standing, best-selling author of Plunder of the Commons: A Manifesto for Sharing Public Wealth and The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class.

Professor Standing’s latest book Plunder of the Commons questions the commodification of our shared wealth, from the air we breathe, to the water we drink to the public spaces we all use. Guy’s talk will address these themes and outline a future vision and practical steps on how we might collectively reclaim and expand the Commons for present and future generations.

Date: Tuesday 19 November 2019
Time: 5.30–6pm light refreshments, 6–7pm public lecture followed by Q&A
Venue: Community Hall (disability access), Corner of Vulture and Sussex Streets, West End (enter via 11 Sussex Street)

RSVP by 18 November to Ms Julia Alldridge:
