This one-hour panel discussion explores the idea that we can all play an active part in making change happen to promote sustainability and social justice.

Our panel draws upon a diverse group of change-makers, working in different areas (sustainable energy; anti-racism; corporate social responsibility), through different roles (formal responsibilities, campaigning) and with different life experiences. The common thread is that they have all found ways to use their platform and opportunities to influence change in organisations, communities and society – something arguably achievable by everyone. The session will explore what makes this possible, how to get started as a change-maker and how to achieve the greatest impact.
