Happy Summer from 6Heads,
We hope you are all enjoying this glorious sunshine and all the joy it brings.
Over the Summer months we have some great events and activities planned, we look forward to seeing you at one.
This Sunday 9th July: Walk and Raft Race
Escape the city and join us for the Lewes Raft Race. Lead by Louis Rutherford our brilliant team have been busy building a permaculture raft which will race from Lewes to Newhaven. We have a group who will meet at Victoria at 10.30 am to get the train together, visit the raft for a talk on the permaculture structure, have a picnic and then walk along the river to Newhaven watching the race before travelling back to London.
20th July: In conversation with George Monbiot
Join 6 Heads for an evening in conversation wtih George Monbiot – one of our sustainability heroes.
George Monbiot is a bestselling UK-based author and columnist known for his writing on environmental and political issues and activism and will be in conversation with Sarfraz Manzoor.
Here he will focus on the issue of common land as a starting point for a wide-ranging discussion, as DC Moore’s new play, Common, plays at the National.
Monbiot co-founded The Land is Ours a landrights campaign for Britain in 1995 and his latest book is How Did We Get into This Mess? Politics, Equality, Nature.
After the event we will head onto the South Bank for a riverside summer drink and discussion.

On the third tuesday of the month we invite people who want to actively contribute to running 6Heads events and building our community to get together for a drink and snack, meet like minded curious, committed change-makers and in grand tradition take part in inspiration show and tell.
We will meet at the Duke of Cambridge in Angel Islington at 6.30 pm. Please join our facebook group or email Louisa at Louisa.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
30th August: Getting experiential – bring your boldest ice-breaker night
We know to create change we need to challenge mindsets and collaborate which means atmosphere, comradare and a sense of community are an absolute must.
Over the years our events have seen an array of ice-breakers and team building exercises which have set us up for creative thinking, connecting and solution finding.
Our catalystic facilitators have got us to create music, throw invisible objects, embrace pronoia, share our laughter, build ducks from lego and stare into eachothers eyes all in the name of change.
So we thought it would be fun to have a night of bring your boldest ice-breaker to end the summer
