In a world of diminishing natural resources, global economic crisis and constant pressure on time, how does not having enough shape the way we think? Free Thinking brings together a panel to debate these issues.

Professor Sendhil Mullainathan teaches Economics at Harvard University and is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation ‘genius grant’ and co-author of Scarcity: Why Having Too Little Means So Much. Professor Simin Davoudi from Newcastle University’s Global Urban Research Unit investigates resilience and sustainability in planning.

Professor Jeremy Till heads Central Saint Martins and is Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Arts London. His recent research explores the way scarcity can provoke creative solutions to development and housing needs in different cities across Europe.

In association with Cafe Culture North East.
