Rethink Activism (Kristin Birkeland - DENMARK)
Kristin Birkeland, Co-founder of Sager der Samler, Teamleader/coach KP from 2002-2007 and KaosPilot from Team 4, will be hosting a talk on rethinking activism!
People with a dream of a better world, just start building a little piece of it themselves. They produce vegetables on rooftops, open dumpster diving cafés where vulnerable people lift each other up, create entrepreneurial hubs in empty blocks of flats, turn suburban streets into sustainability labs or create online universities for refugees. They believe that things happen when we do something, and they are renewing society bottom up.
On September 15th to 17th 2017, activists from all over the world gather at a people’s festival in Aarhus. They present 101 examples of a rethought world. And we are all invited to be part of inventing, building and discussing new solutions to important problems. Explore a new democratic culture, where we use vigour and imagination to make our dreams of a better world manifest in our everyday life.
