The Hay Festival Greenprint Forum

On the first day of the festival, Thursday 21st May is a series of conversations that addresses global change, cultural imagination, sustainable practice and the fusion of indigenous and traditional cultures and progressive science.

Called The Hay Festival Greenprint Forum, the sessions will address questions such as

  • How can we provide a sustainable food supply sufficient to meet the needs of a growing population facing climate change

  • How do communities adapt to change and migration?

  • Securing Energy Supplies

  • How will climate change affect biodiversity and the way we manage freshwater supplies and the oceans as a resource?

More details here: Greenprint Forum

Rob Hopkins, Rosie Boycott and Andrew Simms will be discussing Transition Now. The Transition Town Movement is described as ‘the UK’s fastest growing social experiment.

In the evening Franny Armstrong talks to George Monbiot about the making of The Age of Stupid.
