“UNsustainable UNconference at FACT (May 9 2009, 12.00pm, free admission) relies on the knowledge of its audience-participants as the core programme.
A Manifesto for Change
An unconference is a participant driven face-to-face conference that set’s its own agenda and facilities inclusive debate.
The UNsustainable UNconference comes out of FACT’s response to the city’s Year of Environment, and the urgent need to have a forum to advance the ecology and dialogue around the sustainability of society. Held alongside our first project that explores this question, Climate for Change, the UNconference invites communities of interest who have been engaged in this project and who are operating through self-organising networks and alternative models of both capital and cultural production.
During the course of the debate the participants will generate a Manifesto for Change; drafted by multiple authors, looking at envisaging and identifying the principles to adhere to, to live in a more sustainable world. A People’s Plan rather than a Master Plan
There will be invited experts, consultants who are participating in civic discourse on social change and climate change, and all are are invited to contribute.
the procedure for attending/ registering is really simple and in the spirit of an open forum, just follow this link and add your name: http://climateforchange.fact.co.uk/unsustainable_unconference
