The Talk – A Peasant’s Take on Legacy
Speaker:

James Rebanks

James will talk about how even the smallest and mo

st modest of us can shape an enduring legacy by starting on the things we can affect and change, and by supporting others around us. His talk will focus on his family’s small farm and their fields, and the things they have done by working with others, but it will be global in reach, and bring the sometimes abstract, politicised and globalised discussions back to the realities that sustain us all. James believes that the biggest thing stopping us from making massive progressive changes is the few inches between our ears, our problematic beliefs about economics, and our fear of change.
