Panel discussion: New Populism – Learning to talk with people we disagree with

18:30 – 20:30 – Yard Theatre

The last year has seen seismic political shocks in the form of the Brexit vote and Trump’s election. But it has highlighted the vast range of opinions and view points within our society.

In the context of climate change, what does the rise in popularism mean for people committed to taking effective collective action to re-shape our society?

Join us for a panel discussion with George Marshall (Climate Outreach), Sheila Menon (Reclaim the Power) and Kooj Chuhan (Metaceptive and Virtual Migrants)
