Can business be a force for good?
Join us for an evening of discussion with Riverford founder Guy Singh-Watson; the co-founder of Aardman, the animation company behind Wallace and Gromit, David Sproxton; and Jessica Prendergrast, founder of the community-owned Onion Collective. One more speaker to be announced.
Businesses are often mistrusted for being driven only by profit and greed, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Alternative ownership models, like employee or community-owned companies, are radically transforming what a business can do in terms of looking after its staff, protecting the environment and creating a joint vision for a collective future.
As the planet teeters on the brink of climate and biodiversity crises, hear how businesses can re-write capitalism so that it is better fit for the future.
The evening includes a delicious meal at Riverford’s Field Kitchen restaurant, including plentiful sharing-style platters of seasonal organic food, served around communal tables where the conversation and debate will continue into the evening.
Tickets cost £35 and include the sharing feast.
