We dedicate the final day of The Ripples of Hope Festival to a theme that has a massive impact on human vulnerability and inequity: our Environment & the Planet. Every aspect of our environment – its quality, its design, its stability and survival – determines our ability to make human rights a reality. We’ll discuss food politics, the design of cities, the future of sustainable fashion, ethical economic growth, young climate activists, indigenous knowledge and practical actions all of us can take.
You’ll hear from speakers including Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi; former President of Ireland Mary Robinson; Chair of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights UK and entrepreneur Paul Lindley OBE; human rights lawyer Philippe Sands QC; Director for the Centre of Applied Human Rights at the University of York Paul Gready; founder of the Eden Project Tim Smit; with more speakers to be confirmed soon!
Please note that evening events are ticketed separately to day passes.
