CLAIRE GREEN

Discussing: Helping homelessness, and the impact of volunteering

MARTIN ROWSELL

Discussing: Uniting people around the world

Martin will be talking about founding charity Postcards For Peace, and how it has changed his views on the world and it’s people. Hear about how Martin has built connections between people around the world to show that there can be unity in diversity

NATALIE LLOYD AND SOPHIA HILL

Discussing: Building intimate networks through menus of food and conversation

Natalie and Sophia will talk about breaking down the barriers of small talk. An experiment in “speed friendships”, their monthly event Manner invites small groups of random people to participate in an evening of food and conversation. In a world where real, simple human connection is becoming increasingly elusive, this is where the networks of the future should begin.

JO CRUICKSHANKS

Discussing: How to belong anywhere

Drawing on 20 years of meditation, yoga and creative leadership, Jo will be discussing how cultivating an awareness, connection and acceptance of our somatic experience can allow us to find a sense of belonging in every situation life has to offer.
