*** A special tour by Hackney Tours & Shaun Higgins for 6heads ***

“If we are to better the future, we must disturb the present”

...it could be the mission statement of a modern day innovator in East London - the nearest that we have to Silicon Valley - but it's a quote from a Hackney religious radical of the 1800s. This part of the global city has a rich tradition of disruptors rocking the mainstream boat to address the problems they see around them.

Hackney Tours uses walks to explore the past to reframe the present and anticipate the future; we're tapping into that on a forthcoming walk that channels the best of this powerful desire for positive change by showcasing examples of it happening around us today.

Using inspirational characters from the past, we discover how today's pioneers in Dalston are following in great footsteps. In Hackney we're standing on the shoulders of giants, whether they be inventors or reformers or activitists. Many of the things we take for granted today were hard won by people who had the moral courage to stand up and risk ridicule, or worse.

Then we're going to connect the external world of commerce with our own internal world...

How do we fully cultivate these seeds of change in business - and how do they link to our own personal value sets?

We'll sit down in a quirky Hackney social enterprise, as life coach Shaun Higgins helps us tap into our collective wisdom. Can true social change happen without getting in touch with our authentic selves?

Shaun will show us how sustainability is a lived experience, not an abstraction. So where are we all within this pattern of personal values and effecting change? Using techniques from Shaun's time at Embercombe we're going to talk about where we are and what our own personal challenges are.

The feedback from the original walk was great, this time we're adding another stage with Shaun. For sustainable business, we need sustainable individuals.
