Meeting of the 12 conveners of Quilligan Seminars and of the emergent Working Groups of Commons Rising
On June 18th from 6.00 till 8.00 pm. in Committee Room 13 of the House of Commons (Westminster Palace)
Hosted by Michael Meacher MP
It is designed for a deep enquiry into what the participants hoped to develop as a result of JBQ's huge input, and how effective can be our aim of creating an experiment in systemic change that embrace for instance, the model of NEF's 'The Great Transition' and the insights on complexity and the commons emerging from the such as Civil Society Forum, Simpol, Living Systems, Henry George Foundation, Finance Innovation Lab, Inclusive Faith, Synthesis, St James;Picadilly and as perhaps being applied by IPPR.
The conveners of the seminars may have valuable insights to pass on to the conveners of new Working Groups; and vice versa.

Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has travelled the world to chronicle the effect of oil on all our lives, and to reveal the rarely seen mechanics of its production and distribution.
This exhibition shows three sections from Burtynsky’s series OIL: Extraction and Refinement, Transportation and Motor Culture and The End of Oil. The works depict landscapes scarred by the extraction of oil, and the cities and suburban sprawl defined by its use. He also eloquently addresses the coming end of oil, as we face its rising cost and dwindling availability.
