In the context of environmentalism in the UK, what are the changes that we each want to see in the world? And how might we get there? Come and join us for a participative journey of discovery, in which we will be exploring these simple, yet important, questions. This is a workshop-style forum in which we give space to express ourselves authentically, allowing for open dialogue. As usual, open to people of all faiths and beliefs and there is no charge.

Within the forum, we will also be hearing feedback on the national climate change march, as well as other events LINE has participated in.
