With the overall theme title ‘Values for The Future’ our next Seminar is planned for Saturday 22nd April, which appropriately happens to be Earth Day. With support and encouragement from members of West Midlands New Economics Forum this will be our first time in Birmingham. The venue is Carrs Lane Conference Centre, a central location ten minutes from New Street station and three minutes from Moor Street station. We have booked the Bertha Wright room on the first floor: unfortunately no disabled access to this otherwise very suitable room.
