What should we do about inequality?

Where: The Old Palace, Deansway, Worcester
When: 3 March 2015 at 6.30pm

There is a growing recognition that the level of inequality in Britain has become a major issue and that something needs to be done about it. The Diocese of Worcester in partnership with the West Midlands RSA (Royal Society of Arts) Fellowship and Talk Shop invite you to a discussion about an issue that we are likely to hear a lot about in this general election year.

Talk Shop is a new discussion format that enables everyone to get to grips with big issues, reaching their own conclusions, speaking for themselves. It’s designed to promote respect and consensus, to encourage people to listen as well as talk. Above all it’s fun. Nobody gets shouted at, everyone feels they can take part.

The starting point for this discussion is, what should we do about inequality? Five options or ways of answering the question will be presented. People then decide which option they prefer and form a small breakout group to explore the pros and cons. They present their thoughts to the whole group, and the debate begins.
