CONVERSATIONS FOR CHANGE LONDON 2017

Join us on Saturday 11th November 2017 for an open conversation exploring the central question "What could I be doing to change the world?"

We are all passionate about this world and making a difference in it but on November 11th you will have an opportunity to listen and respond to others’ thoughts and ideas, to identify the value you can offer and commit to the difference you can make.

Using a style of workshop known as Open Space, this is a day that is entirely led by its participants - there are NO speakers. It is up to you and the other participants to energetically and creatively consider the issues faced by the world right now and consider innovative solutions.

Throughout the day you will be asked to constantly consider where you are able to actively contribute or add value. In the process you will learn more about where your unique talents, experiences, and levels of influence can help to shape a more compassionate and collaborative society. You can talk and you can listen, you can shape other ideas and have your own affected by what you hear. You can ask difficult questions and try and answer other people's.

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 Progress made on issues such as human rights or climate change risks being set back years by leaders elected within outdated and unequal democratic systems.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
