Led by Anja Lyngbaek, Associate Programmes Director of Local Futures – a NGO focused on alternatives to the global consumer culture – we will explore ‘Big Picture Activism.’ What is it? How does it work? Is it the answer to many of the challenges facing the world today?
Anja coordinates Local Futures’ International Alliance for Localisation initiative and lives in rural Mexico, where she has co–founded a NGO for sustainable community action and a rural school with ecology and creativity in mind.
The talk covers topics such as the need for a global to local shift, localisation in action and people’s movements.
British Sign Language interpreters will be on site for this talk.
