  • Culture Night: Storytelling for Sustainable Futures

    Culture Night: Storytelling for Sustainable Futures

    A night of new stories on climate action and sustainable futures. We all need stories that enable us to see, believe in and act on the possibilities for change. We need to chart new directions to leave the old stories behind. On this Culture Night, we will gather at the Sustainable Futures Lab to discuss what drives our ideas to shape and imagine the future we long for. We will find stories of liveable cities and futures, stories that motivate and empower us to be creative and to do what it takes to make the world we need. To change our relationship to the physical world and each another means changing how we think about everything – joy, power, time, space, nature, value, what constitutes a good life, what matters, and how change happens. Jointly, we will paint a picture of how these different stories come together to build hope for a new world.
