CAN WE JUST ASK

Can Social Entrepreneurship Really Change The World?

27th August 2019

SOLD OUT

 

A live panel discussion in partnership with TOMS, recorded as part of the Can We Just Ask podcast.

The conversation will ask questions about all types of social entrepreneurship:

Is all social enterprise equal? Do not-for-profits need to incorporate lessons from social entrepreneurs in order to thrive in the 21st Century? Should multinationals and corporates stay out of the world of social-good, or is it those big companies who we really need to get on board to have an impact? Are start-ups using the tag of 'social entrepreneurship' as a marketing strategy? How can social entrepreneurship exist outside of a world of privilege and avoid causing more harm than it helps?

As always, the panel will be audience-led. We encourage everyone in the room to be part of the conversation, to make statements, ask questions and share their thoughts - there's no such thing as a stupid question.

Panellists:

Lisa Hogg, TOMS

Alex Beasley, Patagonia

Nick McGirl, Ashoka

Josh Babarinde, Cracked It

This event is now sold out but you can read more about our panellists, food and drink partners and charity partner on the Ticketpass page here.

CAN WE JUST ASK

How Do We Shape The Future Of Masculinity?

24th September 2019

SOLD OUT

 

A live panel discussion in partnership with TOMS, recorded as part of the Can We Just Ask podcast.

The conversation will ask questions about the future of masculinity in the 21st Century: How do we move beyond rhetoric and look forward to provide a new image of the modern man? Do we need to build a blueprint for boys and men growing up in today's world? Why are men the most likely to commit suicide, and does society need to change it's approach in order to tackle the issue? Do body image issues affect men more than they let on and does the fitness industry need to work harder to stop idolising unrealistic stereotypes? Are today's conversations making it harder for men and boys to find the right people to look up to? Is the idea of stamping out toxic masculinity causing more harm than it intends heal?

As always, the panel will be audience-led. We encourage everyone in the room to be part of the conversation, to make statements, ask questions and share their thoughts - there's no such thing as a stupid question.

Panellists:

James McVey, The Vamps

Derek Owusu, Writer & Podcaster

Iman Amrani, The Guardian

CAN WE JUST ASK

Why Are Women Still Paying For Their Sex?

30th October 2019

SOLD OUT

 

A live panel discussion in partnership with TOMS, recorded as part of the Can We Just Ask podcast.

The conversation will ask questions about gender inequality throughout society: Are we all going to be worse off until we achieve true equality? Is society still inherently set-up to favour men? When will women have true autonomy over their bodies? Why has it taken so long for the Government to recognise the importance of campaigns such as #FreePeriods and is that just the tip of the iceberg? Are we ever going to achieve true equality, or is that an impossibility? Is Slut-shaming so ingrained within the media and our own language that it will never be truly stamped out?

As always, the panel will be audience-led. We encourage everyone in the room to be part of the conversation, to make statements, ask questions and share their thoughts - there's no such thing as a stupid question.

Panellists:

Milou Deelen, Journalist & Activist

Dr Sara Kayat, NHS & Private GP, Resident GP on This Morning

Faima Bakar, Journalist - The Metro & Gal-Dem

CAN WE JUST ASK

Can Anyone Be An Activist?

20th November 2019

SOLD OUT

 

A live panel discussion in partnership with TOMS, recorded as part of the Can We Just Ask podcast.

The conversation will ask questions about activism, the downfalls and it's successes: Is activism inherently inaccessible beyond a certain sector of society? Are organisations like Extinction Rebellion too unrelatable to ever make a big enough impact beyond their supporters? How does community activism help to project the voice of society and how can everyone get involved? Does community activism need to adapt to the digital world, or is it already one-step ahead? What's next for community activism, and how can we raise the voice of the smaller organisations who are already making a big impact?

As always, the panel will be audience-led. We encourage everyone in the room to be part of the conversation, to make statements, ask questions and share their thoughts - there's no such thing as a stupid question.

Panellists:

Alice Aedy, Photo Journalist, Documentary Film Director and Activist

Gina Martin, Writer & Political Activist

Alex Holmes, Deputy CEO, The Diana Award

Richie Brave, Presenter/Activist (BBC 1Xtra)
