How to start a revolution: effective activism for a Kinder world

Solutions

It’s time to take a stand. Join us for our third Kinder Conversation on 3 October 2019 at The Student Hotel, Amsterdam City

How to start a revolution

Our third Kinder Conversation will ask what makes certain movements fail, and others succeed - and how people like us, and people like you, can start a revolution.

2019 has certainly been the year of protests - from climate strikes and anti-Brexit marches to Hong Kong, people across the world are standing up and taking action. At Kinder we believe in the power of the charitable sector, and we want to help concerned global citizens and activists learn from the organisations already successfully making a change, globally and here at home.

We're delighted to be hosting this event in collaboration with our friends at The Student Hotel and will present to you organisations of different sizes that are making real change happen as we speak. After introducing you to the broader theme with the help of a keynote speaker there will be the opportunity to participate in Q&A's with a wide range of speakers who approach the topic of activism from different perspectives.

­čôů When Thursday 3 October 2019. Doors open 6.15pm, event starts 6.30pm

­čôş Where The Student Hotel, Wibautstraat 129, 1091 GL Amsterdam

­čÄ» Why should I attend?

Have you been inspired by protests and activists over the last few months? Maybe there’s an issue you care about but you’re not sure how to really make a difference? This event will investigate movements led by individuals like Greta Thunberg and grassroots movements like Extinction Rebellion, right through to huge campaigning of larger organizations, and will help you understand how you can start your own revolution.

There’ll be inspiring talks, exciting and useful Q&A's and networking drinks to meet budding changemakers.  

Why effective activism?

Our first two Kinder Conversations looked at the futures of meat and sustainable aviation. We’ve heard about lab grown meat, electric planes and what we - as concerned global citizens - can do to live in a more environmentally friendly way. While discussing these technological advancements, we started thinking about how the changes our speakers were advocating for could be achieved and how you and I can help make them happen.

So for this evening, our third event, we want to look beyond individual causes and think about how change is achieved globally. We'll dig a little deeper into how activism is making a difference, and what individuals can learn from the work of big organisations.

Join us, hear from the experts, share ideas with fellow future activists and start your own revolution. Don't forget to secure your ticket here
