Jess is a member of Extinction Rebellion, an environment activist group containing a group of people that have a shared vision of change. We were fortunate enough to have Jess talk on our Low Impact Living & Environment panel, and she told us all about the amazing actions she’s been involved with whilst campaigning with Extinction Rebellion. Jess’s talk is titled, “Tell The Truth”. She will be focusing on what it means to tell the truth about the climate change and ecological crises. Jess will also look at the heart of Extinction Rebellion, and where we can go from here. If you want to get more active, come and hear her speak at Topics: Environment!

EMILIE VANPOPERINGHE

Emilie is the co-founder of Oddbox, London’s first wonky veg box delivery fighting food waste and ridiculous food standards. Emilie, and co-founder Deepak Ravindran, are strong believers in not throwing away perfectly good fruit and veg, just because it’s a little bit odd or ugly! They were both so determined to battle food waste, so they visited farms, talked to producers and came up with the idea for Oddbox. Emilie’s talk will be focused on food waste: the scale, the impact and the actions we can take. 

LUNCH BY THE FIELDS BENEATH

Camden locals The Fields Beneath’s mission is to show the world that food and coffee can be delicious, convenient and affordable whilst being entirely plant-based. 

There are two ticket options: one for the talks, and another for lunch catered by The Field’s Beneath followed by the talks.
