1) Festival Great Debate: ‘Last Chance Disruption’
Friday, February 8th, 2019
Time 6.30pm – 8.30pm
“Climate change is now reaching the end-game, where very soon humanity must choose between taking unprecedented action, or accepting that it has been left too late and bear the consequences.”
– Prof. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber –
What’s the best game plan for large scale rapid change? Helena will join the Festival Great Debate and, together with other well-known presenters, battle it out to convince you of the most effective form of disruptive change.

Saturday, February 9th, 2019
Time 1.30pm – 3.00pm
How can we change the systems which we live by to create a better quality of life?
