Our plans are well underway to curate a stimulating and exciting Festival for next June.
We are thrilled that Tamsin Omond has agreed to come and speak to their new book ‘Do Earth – Healing strategies for humankind’ -out now and available from Books On The Hill.
Since dropping banners against Heathrow Airport’s third runway from the roof of the Houses of Parliament, Tamsin has consistently shifted public conversation on the climate and ecological emergency. A founding member of Extinction Rebellion, they have organised (and been arrested for) a number of high-profile protests, co-founded a Suffragette-inspired environmental group called Climate Rush, formed ‘The Commons’ political party, co-ordinated (the successful) Save England’s Forests coalition, and led global corporate campaigns as Head of Global Campaigns at Lush Cosmetics. Tamsin is active in queer uprising, a theatre maker, and the author of RUSH! The Making of a Climate Activist (Marion Boyars, 2009). They are currently running as co-leader of the Green Party.
