Sustainable Prosperity: Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity

Lead Research Organisation: University of Surrey
Department Name: Centre for Environment & Sustainability

Abstract

We propose to establish a multi-disciplinary Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP). Led by the University of Surrey, CUSP will work with a range of academic and non-academic partners to establish a rich international network of collaborative research. The aim of this research will be to explore the economic, ecological, social and governance dimensions of sustainable prosperity and to make concrete recommendations to government, business and civil society in pursuit of it.

Our guiding vision for sustainable prosperity is one in which people everywhere have the capability to flourish as human beings - within the ecological and resource constraints of a finite planet. Our work will explore not just the economic aspects of this challenge, but also its social, political and philosophical dimensions. We will address the implications of sustainable prosperity at the level of households and firms; and we will explore sector-level and macro-economic implications of different pathways to prosperity. We will pay particular attention to the pragmatic steps that need to be taken by enterprise, government and civil society in order to achieve a sustainable prosperity.

The CUSP work programme is split into five themes (our MAPSS framework). Theme M explores the moral framing and contested meanings of prosperity itself. Taking a broadly philosophical approach we examine how people, enterprise and government negotiate the tensions between sustainability and prosperity. Theme A explores the role of the arts and of culture in our society. We will look not only at the role of the arts in communicating sustainability but at culture as a vital element in prosperity itself. Theme P addresses the politics of sustainable prosperity and explores the institutional shifts that will be needed to achieve it. We will work closely with both corporate and social enterprise to test new models of sustainability for business. Theme S1 explores the social and psychological dimensions of prosperity. We will work with households and individuals in order to understand how people negotiate their aspirations for the good life. As part of this theme we will engage with UNEP in a major study of young people's lifestyles across the world. Theme S2 examines the complex dynamics of social and economic systems on which sustainable prosperity depends. We will address in particular the challenge of achieving financial stability and high employment under conditions of constrained resource consumption.

Alongside our MAPSS work programme, we will initiate a major international Sustainable Prosperity Dialogue (chaired by Dr Rowan Williams - former Archbishop of Canterbury and Master of Magdalene College Cambridge). We will also establish an international network of CUSP Fellows from both academic and non-academic institutions.

Planned Impact

The goal of achieving a sustainable prosperity has enormous economic, social and political significance for society as a whole. The combined challenges of climate change, resource constraints and financial instability pose serious threats to businesses, to households, to the finance sector, to government and to civil society. There is an urgent need for first-class, multidisciplinary, innovative research on the wider implications of these challenges and on potential solutions to them. There is also a need to promote an open, creative dialogue on the nature of sustainable prosperity and the avenues to achieve it. In seeking to address these needs, our work will have positive benefits in numerous sectors and for numerous stakeholders. In particular:

- Our exploration of the moral framing and meanings of prosperity will re-invigorate civil society in a vital debate about the nature of social progress.
- Our exploration of the role of culture in the co-production of prosperity will provide clear recommendations for policy to support the cultural sector and improve the quality of life.
- Our work with enterprise, developing and testing new business models, will increase the resilience, competitiveness, and sustainability of industry.
- Our work on social enterprise will increase the resilience of local communities and enhance their ability to deliver high-quality services.
- Our initiatives to strengthen and enhance the basis for ethical investment, new banking models, and improved governance will improve financial security and reduce moral hazard.
- Our research on the social and psychological dimensions of sustainable prosperity will provide crucial insights to policy-makers and enhance the democratic legitimacy of transition
- Our analysis of system dynamics will test alternative narratives for the structure of the macro-economy and increase the confidence of government in promoting economic change.
- Our engagement with international initiatives to understand the aspirations and values of young people will enhance the ability of governments to plan for the next generation.
- Our initiative to create a high-profile Sustainable Prosperity Dialogue will increase and improve the participation of civil society, business and academia in governance processes.
- Our innovative research programme on sustainable prosperity will help build capacity amongst young researchers, students and civil society organisations to address new challenges.
 
Description What can prosperity possibly mean on a finite planet? This is the guiding question for CUSP's work. We have explored the macroeconomics of 'post-growth' economies, the social and psychological foundations for human flourishing. We have shown how it is possible to live better, more fulfilling lives, with lower impacts on the environment. We have engaged closely with Governments and Intergovernmental Organisations at UK, European and international level and contributed to the development of a positive vision for a new economy, shaped by the values of care, social justice and ecological sustainability.
Exploitation Route Our work on prosperity is beginning to provide a blueprint for similar work in civil society, business and policy.

Description Our work is in continous demand from a variety of non-academic users, in policy, government and business. Two particular items are worthy of attention at this point: firstly, our work on green investment with the Aldersgate Group (a non-academic partner) is cited in the Government's 25 year plan for the Environment and is also being used in BEIS Green Finance Task Force; secondly, the language and concepts in our vision of 'an economy that works' was used by every main political party in the 2017 election campaign and has stimulated a wide public debate on new forms of economics. From further afield, our work on prosperity has influenced public debates in countries as varied as Germany, Italy, Chile, Iran, New Zealand, France and Bhutan. Finally, we have provided inputs to the UK's Global Strategic Trends review, to the Federal Environment Ministry in Germany and to the European Commissions, High Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance, amongst other things. Our work has also featured in several documentaries across Europe.

From the review: "No amount of technological progress can make economic growth as conventionally measured an indefinite possibility. Ours is inevitably a finite economy, as is the biosphere of which we are part. Although there has been some recent recognition among a few economists and ecologists of these issues, this understanding remains far from widespread."

Description Economic Risk, Resources and Environment (ERRE) is a system dynamics model whose purpose is to analyse the financial pressures emerging from global economic growth while coping with natural limits in both energy and agricultural systems. A major feature of the model is to integrate in the same framework both the dynamic evolution of long term phenomena (e.g. energy transition, climate effects) and the short to medium term structures that are more relevant to decision making in the real world (e.g. extreme weather effects, irrational behaviours of markets). A book, Resources, Financial Risk and Dynamics of Growth: Systems and Global Society by Roberto Pasqualino and Aled Jones, was published in 2020 by Routledge and describes the background to this model development. Here you will find the appendix to that book (Appendix_ERRE.pdf) which contains the detail equations and model structure alongside the Vensim ERRE model (ERRE_Model_10012020.vpm), a short guide (ERRE Vensim Reader Guide.pdf) and scenario runs and data (*.vdf files).

Results and Impact Producing impactful research and engaging with policy-makers, practitioners and other members of our communities form a core part of our identity as a Department of Sociology. At the beginning of November, colleagues participated in a series of public events as part of this year's ESRC's Festival of Social Science. Building on the Department's 2019 festival involvement, this year's sociology events centred on understandings of the good life in Hay-on-Wye and Woking, family communication about young people's digital lives and becoming a parent in a pandemic. Because of COVID restrictions, the events all were held virtually and this seemed to enable unprecedented levels of attendance and engagement.

Results and Impact Conservative thinking offers various necessary ingredients for any serious reflection on the meaning of 'sustainable prosperity'. Most importantly, perhaps, it involves a more profound commitment to the welfare or rights of the unborn (as argued by Burke), seeing as conservatism anchors itself in values and goods that persist over time, including beyond any individual lifespan. In various forms and in various ways, modernity puts nature and humanity in peril, by respecting no fundamental conditions or limits of either.

Results and Impact In this joint lecture, Mariana Mazzucato and Michael Jacobs will seek to explain the causes of the current economic crisis, and suggest how we might escape it. Drawing on their new book, Rethinking Capitalism: Economics and Policy for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth they will show how today's deep economic problems reflect the inadequacies of orthodox economic theory and the failure of economic policies informed by it. They will show how alternative economic approaches can better explain how capitalism works, why it often doesn't, and how it can be made more innovative, inclusive and sustainable.

The lecture will be followed by a discussion with CUSP Director, Tim Jackson, and audience Q&A.

Description A sustainable economy and a cohesive society: do we need to change financial institutions' fiduciary duty to achieve this? 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact The need for the investment industry to help produce a sustainable economy and a cohesive society is well understood and much discussed. There have been some successes, but as yet these are exceptions that prove the rule: our environmental and social problems remain as acute as ever. Is a more radical approach needed?

The issues will be introduced with a series of very short (3 minute) statements from panellists, including Steve Waygood of Aviva, David Rouch of Freshfields, David Pitt-Watson and representatives of UNPRI and Client Earth. There will then be an hour's discussion of the issues. The final 20 minutes will focus on next steps: what kind of intellectual and research input is needed? what kind of support within the industry? what co-ordination with other initiatives? what can those round the table do? what mechanism should we adopt to ensure that the process is sustained?

One immediate action will be to feed the conclusions of the meeting into the work of the EU High Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (which has very recently published an interim report recommending establishing "a single set of principles of fiduciary duty" see: http://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/170713-sustainable-finance-report_en.pdf.)

Results and Impact #ASCOPE2020 is the result of the cooperation between the two networks in ABM and SFC Modelling: MACME-Modelling and Analysis of Complex Monetary Economies, and MAGECO-Modélisation à base d'AGents pour l'ECOnomie. It aims to be a fundamental moment in this crucial phase, by allowing researchers from all over the world to discuss their research findings and creating linkages and networks within the AB and/or SFC community. Theoretical approaches, as well as technical and methodological contributions are highly welcome.

The organising committee is inviting researchers working on Agent-based and/or Stock-flow consistent models in various fields-including economics, sociology, psychology and computer sciences. Key topics are:

AB and/or SFC models for ecological transition, sustainable development, climate change
Path-dependency, hysteresis and secular stagnation
AB and/or SFC methodology: design, calibration and validatio

The conference is taking place 11-12 June in Paris. CUSP researchers Peter Victor and Andrew Jackson are members of the scientific committee.

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact This seminar explores how sustainable fashion design entrepreneurs are developing alternative visions of the fashion industry that focus on resource use and good work rather than economic growth at any cost. Based on in-depth qualitative studies of UK sustainable fashion businesses, we show that fashion design entrepreneurs go beyond the purely commercial and combine business objectives with the environmental and social aspirations. In defining their purpose, these businesses are found to be rejecting dominant models of the fashion industry that aim to maximise consumption. The tyranny of novelty that affects much of the creative industries is rejected with an abandonment of the idea of 'seasons', fast fashion and the need for new collections. This is replaced by a focus on sustainability, longevity, circularity. The findings also show that that these businesses do want to scale up their impact but this is often through sharing ideas and encouraging complementary businesses.

Results and Impact Andreas Malm, author of Fossil Capital: The Rise of Steam Power and the Roots of Global Warming (Verso, 2016), and Associate Senior Lecturer in Human Ecology at Lund University, Sweden, will deliver a talk at Goldsmiths on some of his latest work. Malm's research has focused on the role that fossil fuels have played in the historical development of capitalism, as well as questions of how to move beyond the fossil economy. He is currently working on a sequel to his book, provisionally titled Fossil Empire, on how Britain employed the fuels and associated technologies of the fossil economy to 'create, subordinate and penetrate the peripheries of the nineteenth-century world economy'.

Malm's talk is part of a series of events organised by members of CUSP at Goldsmiths. It will focus on questions of time and nature, and the abstract is as follows:

Fredric Jameson has famously defined postmodernity as the disappearance of time and nature in the space of late capitalism. But as temperatures continue to soar, the legacy of two centuries of accumulated CO2 bursts into the present, in the form of, most spectacularly, extreme weather events, while the Earth system ratchets up the warming on its own accord through a host of accelerating feedback mechanisms. Have time and nature come back to haunt us? This talk will offer some thoughts on the theoretical and cultural implications of a warming world, its peculiar temporality and historicised nature. How can we make sense of the ongoing climate chaos - most recently afflicting the propertyless masses on Haiti - and, more importantly, intervene in it? What sort of analytical equipment could be of use here? Discussing some contemporary theories of the imbroglio of nature and society, this talk will sketch a historical materialist approach to the dialectics between them.

Results and Impact Donald Trump has said his proposed tax cuts will be 'rocket fuel' for the US economy. He is the latest in a long line of political leaders chasing economic growth as a key policy objective. We are told again and again that GDP - Gross Domestic Product - growth is good for the economy; it lifts people out of poverty, provides jobs and investment, and improves lives. While there is general agreement about the need for growth in the developing world, what about the costs of growth in the rich world? Is growth accelerating environmental damage? Is it causing greater inequality?

Owen Bennett Jones is joined by Tim Jackson from the Centre for Sustainable Prosperity, University of Surrey; Daniel Ben Ami - author of Ferraris for All: In defence of Economic Progress; Jared Bernstein, economic adviser to President Barack Obama; and Annie Quick of the New Economics Foundation, to discuss who really benefits from growth and whether we can have prosperity without it.

Results and Impact This article explores inequality in the UK. It examines the evidence for rising inequality over the last fifty years, estimates the economic welfare lost to society from an unequal distribution of incomes and addresses the critical question of managing inequality in the context of declining growth rates. It finds no evidence to support the claim that inequality inevitably rises as GDP growth declines. On the contrary, empirical data show that lower growth rates are as likely to be associated with declining inequality in recent UK history.

Description CONSTRUCTING AND MOBILISING 'THE CONSUMER': RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION & THE POLITICS OF FOOD WASTE REDUCTION IN THE UK 
Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach Regional
Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact The consumer is a well-established figure in contemporary politics and commerce, and there are strong tendencies - both colloquial and academic - to treat it as a self-evident category. Contrary to these trends, there is an important body of work that explores the contingency and construction of 'the consumer' alongside the ways in which this shifting subject position has been mobilized in pursuit of various political and economic projects.

Taking a cue from these developments, this presentation considers the apparent vogue for tackling global problems (in sustainability, health and so on) through appeals to the responsibilities of individual consumers. While objections to these manœuvers are not difficult to find, critical perspectives on sustainable consumption and behavior change neglect fundamental questions concerning changes over time, variation across substantive domains, and the mechanisms through which individuals and consumers are assumed to be responsibilised.

By way of rejoinder, David presents the findings from an empirically grounded study of the ways in which the challenge of food waste reduction has been framed, interpreted and responded to in the UK. Particular attention is paid to the configuration of relationships between different groups of strategic and collective actors (firms, policy makers, civil society organizations), and the ways in which these are mediated by the real and discursive figure of 'the consumer'. He demonstrates that initial responses did indeed frame the issue as one fostering more responsible patterns of consumption, but that this quickly gave way to an emergent sense of distributed responsibility. Tracing the contours of this debate, David suggests that the (arguably) more satisfactory manner in which it unfolded relates to the rhetorical and tactical deployment of 'the consumer'. To conclude, he posits the possible exhaustion of the responsibilized individual as a way of theorizing the location of the consumer in relation to the politics of sustainability.

Results and Impact Adair Turner gave a public lecture on #SustainableFinance at the University of Surrey on Thursday 11th February 2016. One of the most respected thinkers on financial reform and author of Between Debt and the Devil, Adair explored the financial innovations needed to deliver sustainability and avoid excessive credit growth.

"Prior to 2008, the dominant orthodoxy in academic economics was that more finance, and in particular higher credit as a percentage of GDP, was good for growth. But the crisis proved that assumption false: and there are good reasons for debating whether increased growth should always and in itself be the overwhelming objective."

Results and Impact As the pundits pore over the adequacy or inadequacy of the Chancellor's long-awaited proposals to 'reboot' the economy, we draw together a range of CUSP resources for those interested in asking deeper questions about economic recovery after the pandemic. From Simon Mair's exploration of post-Covid futures and Craig Rye's analysis of economic cycles, to Joanna Kitchen's useful DIY guide to qualitative research under lockdown; and from Marit Hammond's deep challenge for deliberative democracy and Will Davies analysis of 'succession economics', to our groundbreaking work with the APPG on the Limits to Growth (including our letter to the Chancellor on breaking the 'growth dependency'): the items in this month's newsletter challenge us to ask whether recovery is enough. Or whether it's time for a complete economic rethink-a renewal of both the vision and the policy mechanisms that will lead us towards a fairer and more resilient society. Alongside new work, we've taken the liberty of posting some older pieces-written long before the corona virus crisis, but now more relevant than ever.

Results and Impact The first CUSP summer school brought together 24 PhD students at Cumberland Lodge, an educational charity near Windsor, over three days to share ideas, build friendships and have conversations that cut across the academic disciplines and experiences of all attending. CUSP is lucky to have a wonderful cohort of PhD students and this was complemented with other students from UCL, Leeds and Cardiff Universities.

A PhD tends to focus researchers on narrow topics, but this gathering allowed us to explore the breath as well. Each researcher shared their work to others from different disciplines while at the same time exploring common themes and different ways of looking at the same topic.

While the conversations were focussed on specific research and practical topics, we wanted the summer school to give as much attention to the personal experience of doing a PhD. A PhD can be a lonely ride. Just as CUSP seeks to research ideas of the 'good life' and 'good work', so as a community we were looking for ways to provide support at some difficult times. The inspiring stories of those who have recently finished as well as the warts-and-all discussion of the challenges was part of building this community. A research centre is all about relationships so the chance to reflect with others, walk together, share meals and have fun is a vital part.

The research questions remain challenging, but we look forward to the flourishing of the research of the PhD students, the strengthening of the ties in our community and many future collaborations.

Results and Impact That banking has in many countries been operated in a way that is not sustainable has become obvious since the 2008 crisis. However, what is the link between banking and the structure of the banking sector and environmental sustainability of economic activity, if any? There is a debate among ecological economists concerning whether debt, interest and bank based monetary systems are sustainable or encourage environmental destruction. What are the issues in this ongoing debate? What can we say empirically about this?
