Event Details

We're delighted to welcome George Monbiot to the the Festival.

George Monbiot is an author, Guardian columnist and environmental campaigner.

In this much anticipated event, George Monbiot asks 'what if there were a way to stop climate change and end global hunger at the same time?' and offers a breathtaking vision of a new future for food and for humanity.

Drawing on his new book Regenesis, George shares his profoundly hopeful, appetising and exciting vision of food: of revolutionary cultivation and cuisine that could nourish us all and restore our world of wonders. 

George Monbiot will be in conversation with Lee Schofield, author of Wild Fell: Fighting for nature on a Lake District hill farm.

Regenesis will be available to purchase at the Festival book store over the Festival weekend.

There will be a book signing straight after the event.

Published by Allen Lane/Penguin.

'Fascinating and ultimately positive ... a harmonic vision of how changing our relationship to land use, farming and the food that we eat could transform our lives' - Thom Yorke
