Is a better economic system possible? Andrew Simms thinks so...

Andrew Simms is an author, political economist and campaigner. He is a Coordinator of the Rapid Transition Alliance, an organisation that shows real examples of rapid economic transition, including widespread behaviour change to sustainable lifestyles, which are necessary to live within planetary ecological boundaries and to limit global warming to below 1.5 degrees. In this interview, Andrew talks to Lauren about the failures of our current economic system and discusses how a better economic system IS possible, namely in the form of circular economics.

A massive thanks to Andrew for teaching us all about sustainable economic systems, and to everyone at The Rapid Transition Alliance for showing us that the change for a better world is possible.
