Workshop,

What privilege? Game workshop

2pm - 2.50pm | Saturday 14 July

What privilege? uses question-thinking and play (based on 50 cheeky power character cards and hilarious supremacy scenarios) for participants to check our privileged mindsets, as a transformative process – beyond guilt and blame, so we can collectively develop negotiation skills to notice, disrupt and reframe our shared terms of engagement.

Panel,

Environmental justice

3pm - 3.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Join our panel of distinguished environmental thinkers, protectors and warriors as they discuss the seminal events that changed their thinking and started them on this most perilous of journeys to save our planet and fight for environmental justice.

Solo event,

When galaxies collide

3pm - 3.50pm | Saturday 14 July

This session describes the cataclysmic events that will occur when a collision between our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and its neighbour brings dramatic changes to our night sky. But don’t worry – it’s not happening for at least four billion years!

Workshop,

Nap – In:  come, lie down and be counted!

3pm - 3.50pm | Saturday 14 July

Take a horizontal stand against succumbing to an ever-increasing pace of life. In this experiential-educational mini-siesta,  we will take a collective kip, while learning about the science behind the power nap, so you can integrate it safely and effectively into your day.

Solo event,

A neuroscientist’s view of homo sapiens and its world

3pm - 3.50pm | Saturday 14 July

How is the brain, with its unique capabilities, dealing with modern global challenges? A neuroscientific perspective on our biological and cultural evolution will give a more realistic view of the dangers confronting our species. Scientific humanism may be our best chance to adapt for survival instead of failure and perishing.
