Community gatherings represent the best way to find and test the solutions we may have for this. People from all walks of life come together in an informal, cosy environment to share a meal, a conversation and new solutions to old problems. Our hope is to grow the ranks of those who believe in alternatives and creative solutions to problems brought by our current economy.

Lisa has been an educator for over 20 years and has had a lot of fun leading learning with people of all ages. She currently works for Historic Royal Palaces in the Learning & Engagement team and has previously worked as a Senior Program Manager for the education aid program in Papua New Guinea and as the Campaign for Learning’s Policy Advisor to the UK government.
