Where: Community Amphitheatre, Cloughjordan Ecovillage

In his forthcoming book From What Is To What If, Rob Hopkins argues that we do have the capability to effect dramatic change, but we’re failing because we’ve largely allowed our most critical tool to languish: human imagination. Rob asks, ‘what if we could find a way to be bold, brilliant and decisive, to act in proportion to the challenges we are facing, to aim for a future we are excited about?’

Lorna Gold is the author of ‘Climate Generation: Awakening to Our Children’s Future’, in which she shares her personal journey in coming to understand what climate change means to her as a mother. We’re seeing such a call for change from all generations – from School Strikes 4 Climate to Extinction Rebellion, all generations can affect change and will be affected – we’re all in this together.

Rob and Lorna will be joined by other speakers and musicians on the Community Amphitheatre to identify and celebrate the elements of a sustainable future.
