An unconference is a participant driven face-to-face conference that sets its own agenda on the day and facilitates inclusive debate.
The UNsustainable UNconference comes out of FACT's response to Liverpool's Year of the Environment and the urgent need to establish a forum to advance the ecology and dialogue around the sustainability of society. Held alongside our first project that explores this question, Climate for Change, the UNconference invites communities of interest who have been engaged in this project and others who are operating through self-organising networks and alternative models of both capital and cultural production.
During the course of the debate the participants with generate a Manifesto for Change; drafted by multiple authors, looking at envisaging and identifying the principles to adhere to, to live in a more sustainable world - a People's Plan rather than a Master Plan.
There will be invited experts, consultants who are participating in civic discourse on social change and climate change, and all are are invited to contribute.
