Talks and open space discussions will focus on the following themes:

Mind: Tackling the big questions around justice, inequality, structural power and oppression

Soul: A Christian theological insight into tackling injustice, engaging in activism and what it means to put your faith into action.

Hands: The practical details of getting out there and making a difference. Through creativity, business, digital & design, how can we be a practical part of the change we want to see?
