Join Ben Stopford, founder of Conscious Roots to explore the philosophy of Deep Ecology and how its ideas can be utilised to empower positive change in our communities. 

This workshop will explore local living as radical activism, exploring how relationship to place can transform our sense of purpose and wellbeing. The ideas are accessible and the steps simple, so come along and see what you might discover…

*This online session leads up to a deeper online and in person exploration in the late Spring.


7pm Gratitude and the Self 

7:10 Unpacking the key ideas  

7:45 Steps to gentle activism

8pm Q&A 

This workshop is a relational response to the degradation of our lands and communities. The ideas shared demonstrate a blameless way forward, allowing participants to relax into the possibility that the world we dream for might be found in slowing down and paying careful attention to the webs that hold us.
