Organised by The Guardian
Gordon Brown will join us for a special event, live in London and via the livestream.
He will introduce his new book, Permacrisis: A Plan To Fix A Fractured World. From the escalating climate crisis to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, increasing nationalism, surging inflation and worsening inequality, Brown and his co-authors, the economists Mohamed El-Erian and Michael Spence, found their recent conversations focussed on the rapidly increasing chaos in the world.
The new book is the result of those conversations. Recognising that past mistakes had set the world on a bumpy course, they realised that a better path leading to a brighter future exists. Permacrisis: A Plan to Fix a Fractured World, written with Reid Lidow, offers achievable solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges, and sets out how we can prevent crises and create a fairer world for future generations.
Brown is credited with preventing a second Great Depression during his premiership, and in his current post as the UN Special Envoy for Global Education he continues to fight for greater fairness and equality across the globe. This livestreamed and in-person event is a unique opportunity to hear Gordon Brown talk about how we can break out of today’s permacrisis and better manage the future for the benefit of the many and not the few. He'll be in conversation with Guardian columnist, Jonathan Freedland and will also be answering your questions live.
