It's about time we challenged accepted wisdom & the status quo, and made space to really imagine a world beyond capitalism, patriarchy & white supremacy.

What does a just world look like to you? What is the future of work and the workplace? How do we ensure future generations have a planet worth living on? What would queer liberation actually entail, or a world without borders or feminist utopia?

To build fairer, thriving, sustainable societies, we must first imagine them - we must dare to dream beyond the visions of our forebears, or our oppressors.

Our opening panel will explore what a future worth fighting for might look like - and what that fight might involve. Hope and social justice are not pipe dreams, but urgent attainable goals, when we dream together and fight together we make whole new worlds possible.

This opening event includes journalist and author of Make Bosses Pay Eve Livingston,  journalist Jen Deerinwater founder of Crushing Colonialism and Two-Spirit citizen of the Cherokee Nation, alongside climate activist Josephine Becker, one half of the brilliant Yikes Podcast - more to follow!
