It will give participants lots of ideas on how to run a dynamic & interactive event.

The second day will be a deeper exploration of how our way of living is threatening the survival of life on the planet. We will look at issues such as our human development needs, consumerism and climate justice and also explore what impact this crisis is having on  us as individuals, as group leaders/activists and on society as a whole.
