Centre of Pan African Thought presents:
In this workshop, our relationship healer Maeve Crawford will help us to understand the science and process of choosing a life partner. Through awareness, self-reflection and conversation, this interactive workshop will empower men and women to be clear about what they’re are looking for. Then equip you with tools and strategies to find the person that is right for you – right meaning someone who is aligned with your values and vision.

The Faculty of Public Health presents:
A celebration of the life of Peter Draper, pioneering public health campaigner and a leading figure in the humanist movement.
Sunday Assembly London presents:
We’re welcoming the popular philosopher Roman Krznaric to our gathering to talk about this big old life topic. He will base his talk on his new book ‘Carpe Diem Regained: The Vanishing Art of Seizing the Day’, which explores the life-changing potential of carpe diem. He says that he will “delve into its many interpretations, from the grasping of opportunities to wild hedonism and calm living in the moment, and examines its hijacking by consumer and digital culture.”
New Statesman presents:
Authoritarian. Narcissist. Sexist. White nationalist. Terribletweeter. These are just some of the epithets hurled at the 45th president of the United States since his shock election victory.
Join our panel of experts to uncover what Donald Trump really wants – and how he plans to get it. Will he “make America great again”? Or should he make the rest of us very, very worried?
Newham Bookshop with Conway Hall presents:
This talk will look at the links between climate, energy, food and water, with a particular focus on India – one of the most densely populated countries in the world and a place where a small change in climate can make a big difference to the people on the ground.

Conway Hall Ethical Society presents:
Author and journalist, Will Storr, takes us on a journey of self-obsession; from the shores of Ancient Greece, through the Christian Middle Ages, to the self-esteem evangelists of 1980s California, the rise of narcissism and the selfie generation, and right up to the era of hyper-individualistic neoliberalism in which we live now.
London Fortean Society presents:
Professor Joesph Uscinski will show that conspiracy theories follow a strategic logic: they are tools used by the powerless to attack and defend against the powerful. Conspiracy theories must conform to this logic, or they will not be successful. In this way, conspiracy theories are for losers.
New Statesman presents:
Join the New Statesman and Laurie Penny to discuss the launch of her new book, Bitch Doctrine.
