SHINEfest 2020

Lessons from Lockdown

As our normal lives and routines have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all been smashed into the immediate now. And many of the systems that prop us up, satiate us, keep us quiet, distract us and tell us we need them have been found wanting. They’re not fit for purpose, leaving us feeling disconnected from ourselves, our communities and the natural world.

But when a crisis hits, it’s an opportunity to throw everything in the air and talk about real, thrilling, system change.

‘We’ve all been thrown into turmoil recently, but a crisis can sometimes bring with it an opportunity to rethink what our future looks like – individually and collectively.

And we believe there has never been a greater need for inspiration, hope and a plan. That’s what we hope to offer through the conversations at SHINEfest.’

– Rachel McClelland, Founder and CEO planetSHINE
