The next, and final webinar in the #WeMakeTheFuture series is

SPEAKING UP, SPEAKING OUT, LEADING CHANGE: 9 December, 14:00 – 15:00

Outdoor events create microcosms outside the day-to-day where anything seems possible; where we come together, share experiences, exchange ideas, hear and see new music and art forms, and discover fresh ideas. How can we harness this power to raise awareness, push for change, and shift the world?

Frances Fox – Founder of Climate Live and festivals coordinator for the UK Student Climate Network – speaks about why it’s more important than ever to make ourselves heard.  This session will also look at how the outdoor events and festival community can be a part of broader movements in 2021 as part of the Music Declares Emergency No Music on a Dead Planet campaign, and the Arts admin/Julie’s Bicycle Season for Change.
