4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join Jamie Bartlett on a true swirling exploration of the unknown world of ‘radicals’: the individuals, groups and movements rejecting the way we live today and attempting to find an alternative – including innovators, disrupters, idealists and extremists who think society can do better, and believe they know how. Techno-freaks, extremists, radical environmentalists, new messiahs, anarchic movements, fundamentalist Islamists, techless neo-Luddites, autonomous cooperatives and virtual-worlders… Radicals are the symptoms of a deep unrest with modernity and capitalist democracy, but do they have the answer to a better future?
Listen, talk, exchange with Jamie Bartlett and other young participants at the Full Circle TeenTalk.
Registration is compulsory.
