JUNE 8TH – 11TH 2017
A celebration of sustainable ideas inspired by E.F. Schumacher’s seminal work, the festival combines hands on workshops, an inspiring arts and music programme, hard-hitting debate and inspirational talks.
Leading minds in engineering, sustainability and social change combine with a buzzing music and arts programme.
Carefully curated content allows students, artists, academics and the general public to explore the role of innovation and art in building a sustainable future.
