Advaya Initiative & SAVAGE Journal: Is Ecology Relevant?
Join us at UCL to discuss the hands-on, practical implications and relevance of an ecological approach to the crises we face. Featuring:
Satish Kumar (peace activist, author and co-founder, Schumacher College)
Craig Bennett (CEO, Friends of the Earth)
Molly Scott Cato (MEP, Green Party)
