The day’s exciting highlights include talks from: Satish Kumar, editor emeritus, Resurgence & Ecologist; James Thornton, founding CEO of environmental lawyers ClientEarth; Siân Berry, Green Member of the London Assembly; Paula Byrne, Chief Executive of charity ReLit, and a talk by leading educationalist Sir Anthony Seldon who will explain the practical benefits of mindfulness.   

In addition, there will be lively conversations betweem Satish Kumar and Professor Tim Jackson (Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity) discussing ‘Prosperity without Growth’; and Sharon Garfinkel (festival producer) talks to Ahmad Nawaz, a 16-year-old activist and survivor of a Taliban attack, about the role education can play in bringing peace to the world.

Inspiring performances reflecting themes of the day include poetry by Imtiaz Dharker, Indian classical song by Jatinder Singh Durhaialy, a short play-reading by writer Maya Kumar Mitchell, and a performance from singer-songwriter Catty Pearson.
 
The Resurgence Festival of Wellbeing takes place at St James’s Church, Piccadilly, W1J 9LL, on Saturday 23 September 2017. Tickets are £45 (£35 concessions).
