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…
