In his intriguing and counterintuitive new book Slowdown (Yale), Danny Dorling argues that, contrary to what most of us believe, human life is actually slowing down, in diverse areas from birth rate to GDP to technological innovation. And, what’s more, in an arresting graphic style combining text and data with illustrations by Kirsten McClure, he shows how slowing down can be good for the planet, for the economy and for our lives in general.
Professor Dorling will be presenting his evidence in conversation with the Guardian’s Zoe Williams.For more information on the book and Danny's project, you can visit the Slowdown website here
