5 minutes to change the world


Join us live on Facebook!
June 8th-18th – 12:30pm

With Covid-19 forcing us to cancel the Live Smart Community Festival, we’ve been working with Gloucester Cathedral to bring you a virtual and interactive way to explore, learn and collaborate for a more equal, prosperous and environmentally-friendly future for everyone.

Our region and our world is facing some complex challenges for the future. Be inspired and challenged by 5-minute live presentations from students and community groups tackling these head-on.

Tune in daily on our Facebook page here.

Each day you’ll hear from a different speaker for 5 minutes with the chance to share your own thoughts/ask questions through the comment function.

Find out more about who’s speaking each day by clicking on the image below.

If you miss a speaker live, don’t worry you can still watch and add comments on catch up which we will then feed into the final panel session.
