Join us for a unique, interactive evening in the company of activists from 5 continents who are working towards system change. Learn about what’s underway in India, Brazil, the USA, Japan, Denmark, Mexico and other parts of the world, and why people from such different cultures and geographies view localisation as a promising strategy for meeting the greatest social and ecological challenges of our time.
