We were overwhelmed by the historical and scientific truth that is the climate change crisis explored by Professor Sir David King through the anecdotes of his decades spent working with governments and policy makers globally on climate adaptation and mitigation and now on climate repair.

Finally we heard from Anita Grant, the Director of Islington Play Association and Ebony Amoroso, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the media giant Endevor. They spoke about personal and team values which for Anita underpin the vital work of providing services to some of the most marginalised children and families in the UK and for Ebony, inspire an approach to diversity that genuinely empowers individuals at work. My closing thoughts were of the strength that our shared values give us as we face the challenges in society and of sustainability in this turbulent world.

"It was very exciting to attend the launch as the question of values and how we work together both with those that share our ethos and those that don’t is even more important now in these times of fundamental uncertainty and looming crises. This is important work to support people to find common ground in order to implement the changes that need to happen."
