About the event - Episode 1
Green Intersections is about conversations that will trigger an environmental consciousness with audiences. We are looking to engage with practitioners across disciplines and fields to further the sustainability dialogue and gain perspectives that will feed into and inspire our lives. From Literature to Design, from theatre to documentary film making, from waste management to conservationists we are keen to begin conversations with and for people who care about the environment, the way we live today and what’s really in store.
In the first our talks we will engage with two fabulous authors to talk about the route of fiction and non fiction while talking about the environment.
