Via video, participants hear from far-sighted community leaders—Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Julia Butterfly Hill, Van Jones, Paul Hawken and many more—on everything from the planet’s dwindling biodiversity to growing socio-economic gaps. The event also includes lively breakout groups and practical tools.


It is an opportunity for everyone to understand what is happening and to consider how we can all play a part in addressing these problems and creating a world that works sustainability for us and for future generations.


Through this enquiry each individual will discover the unique stand that they wish to take for a more just, sustainable, and fulfilling world.
