Resurgence Festival of Wellbeing 2020 on Zoom

Saturday 31 October 10am - 6.30pm
The event will celebrate 50 years of The Ecologist, with speakers focusing on the key environmental issues of our time.

A sense of wellbeing is what really matters in life. We need a new movement of awareness and action to bring meaning to life and to put community wellbeing at the heart of political and social decision-making. Instead of economic growth, we need growth in wellbeing. The Festival of Wellbeing will explore these ideas - expect inspiring speakers and entertainment.
