CONVERSATIONS FOR CHANGE LONDON 2017

If we were going to start again and rebuild our society on values of kindness and compassion, equal opportunities and sustainability, what would that look like?

If we truly upheld these values in every interaction, every decision we make, and in what we demanded of our society and our global leaders, what sort of world could we be living in?

How could we each be part of creating that world right now?

Join us on Saturday 11th November 2017 for an open conversation exploring all these questions and to identify the many ways we can each have a positive impact, whatever our experience or level of influence.

Using a style of workshop known as Open Space, and facilitated by Francois Knuchel (Caterfly, Human Organising Co), this is a day that is entirely led by its participants - there are NO speakers. Each participant brings a unique perspective and value, and through this creative and energetic workshop ideas are shared and shaped, endless possibilities glimpsed and innovative plans made. In the process, you will learn more what motivates you and where you can most meaningfully make a difference, and establish connections to a broader network of individuals and organisations aiming to shape a better world for all.

What do we need to talk about:

We live in troubling times. Terrorist attacks occur on a daily basis around the world, unsettling our sense of security especially when they occur close to home. Yet many more people die due to living in poverty, with UNICEF estimating that 22000 children die each day due to poverty-related causes. Progress made on issues such as human rights or climate change risks being set back years by leaders elected within outdated and unequal democratic systems.

The problems faced by individuals, communities, society and the world as a whole are endless, and solutions seem limited or are undermined by those in power, or they can be unsustainable, existing on funds or donations in a world that only seems to prize profit as a successful outcome.

So what do we need?

We need:

- motivated, educated and proactive individuals prepared to make a change

- new and innovative approaches to age-old problems

- to share perspectives, ideas and experiences

- to work collaboratively in order to shape a world in which there is more compassion, love, justice, equality, and protection for vulnerable people and for our global resources.

The problems might be complex but you can make a difference, no matter how small or local that action might be. Even if you are not an expert, or you don’t have lots of time, financial resources or influence, Conversations for Change will show you how you can still be an active participant in making the world a better place.

Who is the event for:

Leading changemakers, local changemakers, latent changemakers

Anyone seeking to make a positive impact or contribution to the society we live in

Be part of the conversation – Be part of the change
