Are you passionate about culture and the environment? Get involved in our 2nd Manifesto for Essex Youth Summit (14-25 yr olds) as part of EASUSTAIN

Date: Wednesday 16th November 2022

Venue: Online, Zoom

For ages: 14-25 

Description: Online Zoom Brainstorm session to discuss our Manifesto For Essex Youth Summit which is going to be taking place as part of EASUSTAIN at Firstsite, Colchester on Saturday 14th January 2023.


Essex Book Festival is hosting its 2nd Manifesto for Essex Youth Summit as part of EASUSTAIN: a new festival focusing on the Environment, Culture & Entrepreneurship, which is taking place at Firstite Gallery in Colchester, 14th & 15th January 2023.

EASUSTAIN’s mission is to increase knowledge and awareness of environmental issues via a series of talks and performances by leading environmentalists and environmental artists. It has a formidable line-up of speakers. These include Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England; Costa Book Award Winner & Naturalist Helen MacDonald; Charles Clover, Writer & Director & Founder, Blue Marine Foundation; Veronika Sekules, Director of GroundWork Gallery specialising in contemporary art and environment; Lord Deben, Member House of Lords & Chairman of the UK’s independent Committee on Climate Change.

We are hugely excited to be part of this event. We are even more excited to invite young people living across Essex who are passionate about culture and the environment to help shape our 2nd Manifesto for Essex Youth Summit, which in turn will feed into next year’s Essex Book Festival programme of activities.

If you are interested in being involved or want to know more, please join this Hear My Voice zoom event at 6pm on Wednesday 16th November.

You may have an idea for a long table discussion about rising waters and flooding involving other festival speakers, an idea for a workshop based around re-wilding local habitats. You might like to take part in a panel discussion, stage a performance, or make a podcast/film of the day. This is your chance to lead the debate.
