The current governance arrangements in the UK are nothing short of a farce. Whitehall ministers and civil servants organising things from the centre have had their chance and failed. Let us build a democratic alternative.

Last night at @FestOfDebate I learned ASTONISHING things about soil, complexity, perennial cereals, precision fermentation & more. In return, I gave @GeorgeMonbiot a go in the magic Rivelin throne (by Jason Thomas) so watch out, he now has special powers. #regenesis #Sheffield 💚

Banning abortions does not stop the need for them, it just bans their safety. Don't agonize. Organize. #BansOffOurBodies #wewontgoback

V. Interesting talk, as inspiring as worrying. There is hope but q is how to cut through all the blockers put in place by lobbyists and a government that is beholden to large corporate interest. Also, George should have done a Nick Ross - "don't have nightmares" at the end!

🗣️ "Corbyn is a naturally relatable and empathetic speaker, and this was on full display in his retelling of experiences from his own life." 👀 Take a look at this article from @ForgePress , all about our event with former Labour leader @jeremycorbyn ! 👇

Reflecting on what I have learnt tonight. Fundamentally one of the big issues we have is ownership and greed. But I was sat next to Fran from @RegatherCoop and @TheFoodWorksSHF and she embodies the solution. Informed, skilled and collaborative activism.

Thanks @GeorgeMonbiot for an inspiring talk @FestOfDebate , incl great discussion on complex systems thinking. Every system, incl global food system, impacts human health. Educating doctors as complex system thinkers gives them the knowledge to advocate for change #PlanetaryHealth

Great turnout for @GeorgeMonbiot at the Octagon Centre tonight to close this year's festival. His talk tonight has spanned micro soil biology, complex food systems and how social movements can achieve change. About to go to the audience Q&A.
