With a huge impact on human vulnerability and inequity: Day Three of a ‘Weekend to Inspire’ at the Ripples of Hope Festival centres on the theme of ‘Our Environment & the Planet’.

The Ripples of Hope Festival at HOME draws to a close with a day dedicated to ‘Our Environment and the Planet’. It’s a theme that has a huge impact on human vulnerability and inequity. Every detail in our environment – its security, design and quality – impacts on our ability to make human rights a reality for everybody.

Every detail in our environment…impacts on our ability to make human rights a reality for everybody.

Up for discussion are food politics, the design of cities, the future of sustainable fashion, ethical economic growth, young climate activists, indigenous knowledge and practical actions that all of us can take.

The Ripples of Hope is a unique and hopeful festival offering five days of conversations, workshops and performances. The festival aims to make us think about the challenges we face as communities and how we can take action to make human rights a reality locally, nationally and across the world.

Up for discussion are food politics, the design of cities, the future of sustainable fashion…

The ‘Weekend to Inspire’ is a three-day event taking place from Friday 17 September to Sunday 19 September, each day of the weekend focuses on a different theme; hosting impressive speakers and thought-provoking discussions. Conveniently, festival-goers can either purchase a weekend pass for access to all daytime events at the festival or a single day pass for a specific day. Evening events are ticketed separately.

On Day Three Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham will share his vision for a ‘human rights city’. You’ll also hear from speakers ranging from 2014 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Kailash Satyarthi to former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, ahead of the third and final Poetic Declaration in the evening (ticketed separately).
