A DIVIDED BRITAIN: WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE NORDICS?

Thursday, October 5, 2017

12th Huddersfield Quaker Peace Lecture, given by George Lakey. George Lakey – speaks to the polarization now experienced in both Britain and his own country (the USA) and predicts that it will become more extreme as inequality heightens. What he has learned from studying the Nordic countries is that polarization may offer as much opportunity as anxiety. – 19:30–21:00 – Huddersfield Quaker Meeting, Friends Meeting House Church Street Paddock, HD1 4TR – Facebook link https://www.facebook.com/events/1865920143688652
