Save Democracy - Abolish Voting

This talk by Paul Evans will attempt to offer a version of democracy that we would choose now if we were starting to create liberal democracy from scratch, knowing what we know about feed-back loops and the democratic flaws that have grown more pronounced as electoral government has evolved.

Camilla Ghazala invites you to discuss and consider: who’s health it is anyway; whether an organisation can balance its wellbeing and its employee wellbeing; why we work in Health and Human professions; and multi-model construct of protected wellbeing and burnout.

Global Goals

The United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development are the blueprint for a better world. To have any hope of meeting them, we’ll need to be better collaborators. Dr Harriet Marshall hosts this event for people actively looking for inspiration, opportunity and support to help them disrupt traditional thinking, raise awareness, take action and build cross-sector partnerships.

Children and young people are experiencing a crisis in their mental health. Growing numbers of under-18s are suffering from anxiety, depression, eating disorders and oth-er conditions, and more are self-harming and attempting suicide. Chaired by Guardian health policy editor Denis Campbell, our panel will be discussing the reasons for this growing crisis and what the solutions might be.

Dinosaurs: Too Big To Walk?

Is our view of dinosaurs completely wrong? Join us to discuss opposing views on Dinosaur life. Brian J Ford argues that they evolved in a watery habitat; vertebrate palaeontologist Darren Naish looks at the evidence relevant to this claim.

What foods make us happy? Join Rachel Kelly and Alice Mackintosh for an inspiring evening to explore the relationship between food and mental health – and discover new ways to boost your mood with food.

For the fourth in this co-hosted meeting series, join us for a discussion with Nick Dearden, , Dr Anne Daguerre and Professor Des Freedman about how our democracy can be undermined by corporate power and elite domination. Unless we correct this then democracy will exist but in name only.

Sunday Assembly at Conway Hall

Join us at this grief-themed gathering with award-winning comedian, actor, writer and improviser, Cariad Lloyd, where we will celebrate this life we have in all it’s brilliance, sadness and laughter. Plus there’s power ballads to sing along to and a vat of tea and coffee for after.

Florence Schechter

There is a penis museum in Iceland, but no vagina equivalent anywhere in the world. Florence Schechter discusses why she chose to set up the world’s first bricks and mortar vagina museum and the strange reactions she’s received along the way.

A conversation: are social media compatible with Humanist ideals?

Social media can bring people together but it can also be harmful. Two speakers will share their thoughts on whether social media, on balance, does more harm than good. Stells is a frequent enthusiastic user and defender of social media while Jeff has a number of misgivings.
