Our 2012 programme of events has now come to a close. We'd like to extend huge thanks to this years speakers and panelists - Rupert Sheldrake, Nora Bateson, Michel Pimbert, Bob Sherman, Philippe Sibaud, Henk Hobbelink, Mphatheleni Maukalule, Patrick Holden and Gathuru Mburu. With two major campaign launches this year - Opening Pandora's Box and Seeds of Freedom - our events programme has seen more faces than ever before. Panels rich with a diversity of speakers from all over the world have provided critical insights into the mining industry and the GM industry respectively, and we feel proud to have been able to bring together such a variety of expertise and perspectives.
Great Events in 2013...
We will be starting 2013 on very inspiring footing by welcoming celebrated author and Sacred Economist, Charles Eisenstein to our north London haven. He will be joined by Satish Kumar in the first of two "In Conversation With" events, which we are delighted to be co-hosting with Resurgence & The Ecologist Magazine. The evening will take place on Friday 11th January. Find out more details and make a booking.
On Saturday 9th February we will be welcoming Dr Vandana Shiva to join Satish in conversation around seed and the critical need to protect our global seed diversity. This event is being held at the Nehru centre in central London. Full details and booking here!
