Event Details

Part of our Good Books for Bad Times mini-series of events, join us to welcome the former national leader of the Green Party to Wendover to discuss her new book, Change Everything, ‘a practical guide to rethinking, repairing and rebuilding the way we live, for a fairer future.’

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.

‘This book is a tonic! Positively bristling with countless common-sense solutions to restore human and planetary wellbeing, Change Everything powerfully sets out what needs to be done and how to do it’ Caroline Lucas

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, or Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle for really formal occasions, 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 travelling 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.
