Event Date: 14th June 6:00 pm

Please welcome Natalie Bennett, former head of the Green Party, as she presents her latest book, Change Everything.

We are living in a social, political, economic and environmental emergency. The status quo is profoundly unstable; change is inevitable. Now is the time to get together to build a far
healthier and more balanced world.

The decades-old political orthodoxy, that greed is good, inequality doesn’t matter and we can keep treating the planet as a mine and a dumping ground, has been a recipe for disaster. Our world needs a new vision, the Green vision. From Universal Basic Income to free education, from less stuff but more life, to genuine democratic opportunities for all, Natalie Bennett brings together a holistic, hopeful and practical vision for the future.
The foundations of Change Everything are conversations with many thousands of people. We need to engage millions to bring together the imagination, talents and energy of all to rebuild and repair our societies. Then a positive future is within our reach.

Natalie Bennett was leader of the Green Party of England and Wales 2012-2016, and entered the House of Lords in 2019. That’s meant a decade traveling the country speaking at public meetings, in schools, colleges and universities, and hearing about the many great grassroots efforts being made to tackle our polycrises. She has degrees in agricultural science, humanities and social science, reflecting her passion for joined-up, systems thinking, rather than reductionist, 20th-century-style approaches. She was editor of the Guardian Weekly, chief sub-editor on the Bangkok Post, and a volunteer at the Thai National Commission on Women’s Affairs.

She grew up on the lands of the Wallumedegal people in northern Sydney.
