By Joanna Yarrow, Writer, Broadcaster and Expert in Sustainable Lifestyles

Joanna Yarrow, writer; broadcaster and campaigner; expert in sustainable lifestyles and Director of Beyond Green, will deliver a lecture, which examines the urgent rationale for living differently in the 21st Century.

The environmental & social imperatives for a mainstream shift to a lower carbon, more sustainable way of life have never been clearer. But how can we achieve the scale of change required in the necessary timeframe? Will technology really save the day?

In this lecture Joanna examines the urgent rationale for living differently in the 21st century & the links between well-being & environmentally sustainable behaviours.

Drawing on experience of working in business, development & the media, Joanna offers some suggestions about how to motivate the mainstream towards sustainable living – from place-making principles to communications & engagement.
